      Th May 4 5pm Francophile SIG Free Conference:Works in Progress
      Talk. Comment réfléchir à l'actualité au sein de l'institution
      universitaire: exemple d'une expérience à Normale Sup par Hélène
      Harder. This talk will be in French, but the discussion will be in
      English and French.This event will take place at in French
      Department Library.
      Department of French 4125 Dwinelle Hall Berkeley, CA 94720

      Cette présentation a pour but de partager avec vous une expérience
      particulière de réflexion politique au sein d'une grande Ecole
      française, mise en place après les élections présidentielles du 21
      avril 2001 : des discussions spontanées se sont organisées parmi les
      étudiants pour déboucher finalement sur une association devenue
      désormais le moteur de la discussion politique et de l'engagement
      intellectuel parmi les étudiants. Après vous avoir présenté plus
      précisément le fonctionnement de cette association et les sujets
      traités, j'aimerais réfléchir avec vous sur la différence de la
      place du politique dans l'institution française et américaine.

      Etant donné la récente actualité française, nous terminerons cette
      présentation avec une discussion ouverte sur les enjeux du C.P.E.

      Mo May 8 5pm Francophile SIG Free Conference: Conversation
      with Belgian Writer Amélie Nothomb author of
      Stupeur et tremblements, Le Sabotage amoureux,
      Métaphysique des tubes, Hygiène de l'assassin.
      370 Dwinelle Hall (Level G) Berkeley, CA 94720

      Amélie Nothomb is a Belgian writer. She was born in Kobe, Japan,
      before living in China, New York, Bangladesh, Burma, and Laos.
      Her first novel, Hygiène de l'assassin was published in 1992. Since
      then, she has published approximately one novel per year among
      them: les Catilinaires (1995), Stupeur et tremblements (1999) le
      Robert des noms propres (2002), and Acide sulfurique (2005).
      Amelie Nothomb's novels have been translated into more than
      30 languages; the most famous, Fear and Trembling, has been
      made into a film.

      Tu May 9 6pm Francophile Movie SIG Free screening & discussion
      of La Faute à Voltaire by Abdel Kechiche (Poetical Refugee – 2000)
      with actress Elodie Bouchez and film critic Jean-Michel Frodon.
      The films are in French with English subtitles.
      Discussion will be in English.
      Stanford Campus Cubberley Auditorium (School of Education)
      Synopsis: Winner of the Golden Lion for first feature at the 2000
      Venice Film Festival, La Faute à Voltaire aka Poetical Refugee is
      the story of Jallel, a Tunisian immigrant in Paris. Claiming to be a
      refugee from war-torn Algeria in order to get political asylum, his
      life in the country of 'liberty, equality and fraternity' is one of
      homeless shelters, illegal jobs and emotionally complex sexual
      relationships. But director Abdel Kechiche refuses to portray Jallel
      as either hapless victim or angry rebel. Instead, he focuses on
      Jallel's interpersonal relationships with his new community, an
      eclectic group of unemployed French and second-generation immigrants
      struggling to survive. Here, it is the wounded who heal the wounded,
      and Jallel, in spite of his own traumas, becomes a healing force for
      the emotionally troubled women whose lives intermingle with his.

      With superb performances by Sami Bouajila (Leo, in the Company of
      Men, shown at the festival last year), Aure Atika (Tenja, The Beat
      that My Heart Skipped) and Elodie Bouchez (The Dream Life of
      Angels, TV series Alias), Poetical Refugee offers a tender portrayal
      of life on the margins.
