Screening of Immigration Movies - "Dheepan"

From Wednesday, 9th August, 2017 at 6.00 PM

 

Bangalore International Centre had arranged the screening of a French feature film under Immigration Series - “Dheepan” on Wednesday, 9th August, 2017 at 6.00 PM at its auditorium.

This film directed by Jacques Audiard is a winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes. This movie tells the story of three Tamil refugees who flee the civil war in Sri Lanka and arrive in France, in the hope of reconstructing their lives. Yet the French banlieues, or immigrant suburbs, are another kind of war zone. Featuring an ex-Tiger in the lead role, Dheepan is a radical and astonishing film. “As the threat of terrorism and the humanitarian challenge of migration from Africa, Asia and the Middle East have precipitated something of a European identity crisis,” the New York Times wrote, “Mr. Audiard’s film has acquired an almost prophetic aura.”
The Screening was well-attended.
