Cinéma Français, Printemps 2015 (Spring 2015)metisdedieu
The Franco-American Centre is pleased to announce its Cinéma Français course being offered during Spring Semester 2015. The theme this semester is “Extraordinary Personal Strength.”

Tonight’s Film:
Le métis de Dieu (“The Jewish Cardinal”)
The Jewish Cardinal tells the amazing true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joining the priesthood. Quickly rising within the ranks of the Church, Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope John Paul II – and found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew, earning him both friends and enemies from either group.  Guest lecturer Msgr Charles Desruisseaux will provide cultural background.

Each film is preceded by a brief presentation of key concepts and followed by group discussion of how the film relates to the theme.  All films are in French with English subtitles.  Presentations and discussions are in English.
