Free Franco-African film series set in March

Add a little French culture to your week with the free Franco-African Film Series held each Tuesday this March at Lone Star College-CyFair.

In conjunction with events all over the world in celebration of March’s French Cultures Festival (le mois de la Francophonie), LSC-CyFair presents four free documentary films from French-speaking Africa. Where possible, the college’s international students will share an introduction to French-speaking African countries prior to the films, which are subtitled in English

The month kicked off with “Afrique, je te plumerai” (1992, Cameroon, 88 minutes) March 2. The series continues with “Afro@Digital” (2003, Congo/France, 52 minutes) held March 9; “Arlit, Deuxième Paris” (2004, Niger/France, 75 minutes) held March 23) and “Le Malentendu colonial” (2004, Cameroon, 73 minutes) held March 30.

The films are all shown at 6 p.m. in the Center for the Arts Recital Hall, room 102 at LSC-CyFair, 9191 Barker Cypress Road.
