FRENCH FILM SERIES : “A peine j’ouvre les yeux” (“As I Open my Eyes”)

McDaniel's annual French Film Series is part of the FACE Tournées French Film Festival. Directed by Leyla Bouzid, this music-filled, French-Tunisian feature is set in Tunis during the summer of 2010, a few months before the Arab Spring revolution. The film depicts the clash between culture and family as seen through the eyes of a young Tunisian woman balancing the traditional expectations of her family with her creative life, as the singer in a politically charged rock band. (2016, 102 minutes, not rated) In French, with English subtitles. Post-screening discussion led by Mohamed Esa, professor of world languages, literatures and culture.  For more information, call 410-857-2460.
