"Better Late Than Never: French Feature Films of the 1970–80s Address the Occupation and the Shoah", a talk by Maureen Turim on Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at the Harn Museum Auditorium.
Exploring the trope of hiding Jews in three French narrative films that address anti-Semitism and the Holocaust, Francois Truffaut’s Le Denier Metro (1980), Louis Malle’s Lacombe, Lucien (1974), and Au Revoir les Enfants (1987), Dr. Turim discerns a provocative strategy that is biting in its criticism of collaborationist France. This event is part of the FFRI 2016–2017 series “Confrontation and Aftermath: Remembering Wars in France, ” organized by Dr. Gayle Zachmann and Dr. Alioune Sow.

All events are Free and open to the public unless noted otherwise.

With appreciation...These programs are made possible by our sponsors, Schram Memorial Endowment, Melton Jewish Studies Endowment, Gerson Lecture Series, Breier Visiting Fellowship, Kahn Visiting Scholar Fund, Gerson Visiting Professor Fund, Futernick Professorship Fund, and Jewish Council of North Central Florida.
