Le Semeur (The Sower) | Tournées Film Festival
November 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
A visually stunning film, taking inspiration (and its title) from Millet’s famous painting. In 1851, France’s autocratic President Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte has ordered the arrest of all the men of a remote farming village following a Republican uprising. The women spend years in total isolation. They vow that if a man comes, they will share him as a lover. When a mysterious & handsome stranger arrives, he ignites jealousies that threaten to destroy the tight-knit community.
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.
