Europe Day event ft. French/CHID students!

Submitted by Sophia Choto on

Attention all Chiddies:

Some students in Louisa Mackenzie's film class will be facilitating conversations about the "ideal and reality" of European union as represented in three iconic 20th-century French films.

From event website:

"Celebrated annually on May 9, Europe Day represents a time to reflect on ideals of peace, unity and economic equity throughout Europe. In the aftermath of COVID-19, the refugee crisis and the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, the distance between myth and reality has never been harder to navigate.

Join us for an informal roundtable discussion in English around Europe’s ideals and realities, together with our special guests UW students and Professor Louisa Mackenzie, as well as AF members, friends, and everyone interested in the intricate stories making the fabric of a collective dream and the foundation of a unique form of governance. Three French films and their vision of Europe will inform/guide our exploration.

This event is organized in partnership with World Affairs Council and the University of Washington- French and Italian Studies."
