Cinema trip for 5th & 6th year French students

January 10, 2020

5th & 6th year French students went to see French Canadian film Une Colonie on Thursday 9th January. It wasn't quite the latest Starwars or Avengers Endgame, but it explored themes related to adolescence, coming of age and social exclusion of the indigenous Canadian Indian tribe, the Abenaki.

 

In class the day before, prior to seeing the film, the students used the Film Studies Guide specially produced by the IFI and the French Embassy to analyse the trailer and anticipate what might happen in the film.

 

As ever with French films, it was interesting, thought provoking and got mixed reviews from the student critics. Back in class, they used the Film Studies Guide again to express their opinions on the film (in French of course) and analyse the plot and characters a little deeper. Overall it was an enjoyable and educational experience.
