Mémoire de Guerre (Memoir of War) | Tournées Film Festival

November 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In Finkiel’s haunting adaptation of Marguerite Duras’s semi-autobiographical novel, the famed author recounts an emotionally complex story of love, loss, and perserverance against a backdrop of wartime intrigue. It’s 1944 Nazi-occupied France and Marguerite is a Resistance member along with husband Robert Antelme and a band of fellow subversives.

This screening is part of the Tournées Film Festival, organized by the UNC Department of Romance Studies in collaboration with the UNC Departments of Art and Art History and Comparative Literature, and the UNC Center for European Studies. The screening is free and open to the public, with English subtitles.

Tournées Film Festival is made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the US, the Centre National du Cinéma et de l’image Animée (CNC), the French American Cultural Fund, Florence Gould Foundation, and Highbrow Entertainment.

Please visit these guidelines for information on weeknight parking on campus.
