The 2013 Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival: Faces of Media will open this year’s film festival with Academy-Award winning French filmmaker Michel Gondry’s 2012 film, The We and the I, on Thursday, March 21, at 7:15pm at the Melwood Screening Room! Director Michel Gondry will introduce his film via Skype! The event will also feature an Opening Night Reception.
The We and the I follows a group of Bronx high schoolers who board a city bus on their way home on the last day of school. With summer break ahead of them, and the group feeling more liberated than usual, the bus soon becomes a micro-community where their friendships, rivalries, ambitions, and anxieties are revealed. Though set almost entirely on the bus, director Michel Gondry enlarges the film's visual canvas with mobile phone videos, text messages, and a series of trompe l'oeil effects executed with his customary flair and inventiveness.
This festival event is presented in conjunction with The Humanities Scholars Program at Carnegie Mellon University.
Opening Night w/ Reception:
$10 seniors and students | $15 general
