One of the upper level French Interdisciplinary classes at
Bowdoin is studying French culture (Literature, music, film, art, etc.)
of the World War I era. As part of the course, the enrolled students
are required to see a series of French films which portray some aspect
of that time peiod. The films are shown in the auditorium in Sills Hall. I believe there is one every other week. On Sunday November 6 at 7 pm
, "The Battle of Algiers" will be shown.
Films shown at Bowdoin in general are not advertised to the public.
would trigger all sorts of extra fees for Bowdoin. As long as the
films are at least ostensibly shown as part of a particular course
curriculum and for those students enrolled in the class, Bowdoin gets to
show them without incurring extra fees.
I have been attending them and it has not been a problem to be there.
If anyone else knows of other activities, events, exhibitions, restaurants, etc. related to French culture, please share them!
