Event Description:
On the occasion of Black History Month, the CECILIA ROLLINS BROWN BAG LUNCH FILM & DISCUSSION SERIES will present the film "Delwende - Leve-toi et Marche" ("Get up and Walk") on Thursday, February 20 at 1:30 PM in the Gluck Theatre. "Delwende - Leve-toi et Marche" ("Get up and Walk") is a West African drama, written and directed by S. Pierre Yameogo. The film is based on real events and looks at a single village in the midst of change - change that reveals people's cruelty, their fixation on being right, and the clash between modernity and traditional beliefs. Yameogo uses deceptively sparse language to tell a riveting story about a mother and her daughter, and focuses on the injustice of some traditional African practices and women’s struggle for equality. In French, with English subtitles.
This program is sponsored by the WVU Office of Multicultural Programs and the Office of International Student Affairs and Global Services, and is free and open to the public.
