Cinema Mon Amour will be screening the movie Patria Obscura directed by Marguerite Stephane Ragot. The movie is about a photographer who goes in search of the memory of his grandfathers, Pierre the legionnaire and Paul the paratrooper, who both died some time ago. With them, he explores the history of his family, a history hemmed in by wars and undermined by silence and unspoken resentments. In this brazen film, he reveals the novel of a country, France, at war with itself.
Venue: Alliance Francaise, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Date: November 17, 2019.
