School of Babel Screening and Discussion

Feb 6, 2017, 7:00 pm

A screening and discussion of the documentary by director Julie Bertuccelli about a school program in Paris created for newly arrived immigrant children to learn French before being placed in a regular classroom. The film humanizes the current debate about immigration, showing children from many different countries and religious backgrounds struggling to learn French well enough to be placed in regular classes. Themes include integration, human beings' ability to find common ground despite enormous differences, diversity and multiculturalism.

This program is funded in part by a UH Quick Grant.
