A Visit With Olivier Ducastel & Jacques Martineau

Friday, January 14, 2005 - 12:00am to Saturday, January 22, 2005 - 12:00am
The Lesbian and Gay Studies Project, the Committee on Cinema and Media Studies, and the Film Studies Center welcome two of the most innovative and provocative filmmakers working in France today, Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau, for screenings and discussions in January. The films of Ducastel and Martineau playfully draw on established genres, such as the musical and road trip, and develop new experimental narrative forms to explore questions of race, immigration, AIDS, national identity, and queer subjectivity in contemporary France. We will screen and discuss three of their best known films.

Made possible by a generous UChicagoArts grant from the Arts Planning Council.
