Bullock Texas State History Museum presents Francophone Film Series: Ma Révolution
With the Arab Spring blossoming in the heart of Paris, people take to the streets to show their support. Everyone except 14-year old Marwann, that is. Despite his Tunisian roots, Marwann is too preoccupied with adolescence. When Marwann stumbles into a street rally one night and has his picture taken by a journalist, he lands on the cover of the biggest newspaper in France and accidentally becomes the face of the Arab Spring. Marwann is instantly branded as a revolutionary hero and the “cool kid” at his school. To win over a crush, Marwann embraces his newfound identity, only to find himself on a journey of self-discovery, first love, and maybe even an actual connection with his roots.
This screening is part of the Francophone Film Series, which brings a rich diversity of cinematic work featuring the Francophone world, a linguistic bloc that covers twenty-nine countries and encompasses countless cultural identities. In its first season, all films explore ideas of discovery. The Museum will highlight the acclaimed films co-presented with Alliance Française d'Austin and Alliance Française d'Austin Ciné-Club. Films in the Francophone Film Series are presented in French with English subtitles.
