Colloquium & Screening, March 18-19, 2002
Thomas Gilou, one of France's best known movie director  will discuss the challenges involved in filming France's multi-ethnic population. 

Gilouís La Vérité si je mens! (Would I Lie to You?) and its sequel, La Vérité si je mens 2! (Would I Lie to You 2?), are among the biggest French box office successes of recent years. Both will be screened during Gilouís visit. They are set among the Sephardic Jewish minority which settled in Paris and other French cities following the decolonization of North Africa.

Gilouís work also includes cult movies such as Black Mic Mac and Raï, focusing on African and other minorities living in disadvantaged and often violent neighborhoods. He is currently working on a new film featuring similar groups scripted by Azouz Begag, a Visiting Professor this semester at the Winthrop-King Institute. 

Film screenings and debates with Gilou are open to all FSU faculty, staff and students without charge at the following times:

  • Monday, March 18, 5.00-7.00 pm, Student Life Building Film Auditorium: La Vérité si je mens!
  • Tuesday, March 19, 9.00-11.00 am, Dodd Hall Auditorium (Room 103): La Vérité si je mens 2 !
