The film being shown follows the story of Farid, a law student in France, who goes on a journey to his father's homeland in Algeria. He does not choose to go on this journey but is instead forced to visit a place he has little interest in. It conveys themes of family, self-discovery and sacrifice. As a dramatic tale, the story also manages to include moments of humour.
The Beyond Babel Film Festival has been organised by FLAME (Film, Languages and Media in Education) at Manchester Metropolitan University. Part of the Research in Arts and Humanities department, the festival is a great chance for anyone interested or studying film to enjoy a screening of an artistic film which may inspire budding filmmakers. Anyone who is interested can come along and enjoy an evening watching and discussing an independent film.
Taking place on Tuesday 6th February 2018 between 6pm-9pm, this is a great event and something different to do in the week. The film screening will be held a [tB] Number 70 on Oxford road[/B], one of Manchester Metropolitan University's buildings. It used to be the Corner House an independent cinema before being taken over by the university, making it a great place for the film festival. The university is able to help anyone with access requirements (due to wheelchair use or a disability) and you can let them know beforehand if you need any assistance by phoning 0161 247 6740 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets to the event are free but need to be booked via Eventbrite. This is just one event in the Beyond Babel Film Festival which also features screenings of English Vinglish and El futuro. After the screening of Homeland, there will be a question and answer session led by Isabelle Vanderschelden from the university.
This is a great event for those interested in films and culture. Don't miss out on the chance to see a free film screening in the city.
