Francophone Film Series: Ma Révolution
Join the Bullock Museum for a screening and conversation about Ramzi Ben Sliman's film Ma révolution (My Revolution).
While trying to impress his crush, a French-Tunisian teenager accidentally becomes the face of the Arab Spring in Paris.
With the Arab Spring blossoming in the heart of Paris, people take to the streets to show their support. Everyone except 14-year old Marwann, that is. Despite his Tunisian roots, Marwann is too preoccupied with adolescence. When Marwann stumbles into a street rally one night and has his picture taken by a journalist, he lands on the cover of the biggest newspaper in France and accidentally becomes the face of the Arab Spring. Marwann is instantly branded as a revolutionary hero and the “cool kid” at his school. To win over a crush, Marwann embraces his newfound identity, only to find himself on a journey of self-discovery, first love, and maybe even an actual connection with his roots.
This screening is part of the Francophone Film Series, which brings a rich diversity of cinematic work featuring the Francophone world, a linguistic bloc that covers twenty-nine countries and encompasses countless cultural identities. In its first season, all films explore ideas of discovery. The Museum is proud to highlight acclaimed films co-presented with Alliance Française d'Austin and Alliance Française d'Austin Ciné-Club. Films in the Francophone Film Series are presented in French with English subtitles. This evening's program is shown in conjunction with our core exhibition, Becoming Texas and includes a film screening and Q&A with guest moderator, Alliance Française d'Austin Ciné-Club Director, Julia Podgorsek.
Please note: Entrance for this screening will be at the IMAX Lobby doors.
