Event description: 

Do you like cinema, the French language or both? Do you want to know the most emblematic actors, actresses and directors of French cinema? The Yale French Department  Ciné Club, organized by Clara and Louis for this school year in collaboration with the Yale French Club, invites you to (re) discover a film, old or recent, that has made history. Documentaries, musicals, period films or current affairs films, there will be something for everyone! Each screening, open to everyone, will be followed by a discussion-debate (in French, of course!)

The next screening will take place Wednesday,  April 5th at 7pm,   Linsly-Chittenden Hall, Room LC 102

L’image Manquante, un film de Rithy Panh

From the time when the Khmer Rouge ruled over Cambodia between 1975 and 1979, the only recorded artifacts that remain are propaganda footage. Panh uses beautifully detailed sculpted clay figurines and elaborate dioramas to recreate the missing images from his memory.
His recollections of his family and friends before and after the regime’s rule are poignantly told through a narrator’s poetic voice.
The Missing Picture is a unique documentary that manages to capture a historical moment that would never be told if not for the sheer creative mind of Panh and his innovative storytelling method.
