Philippe Falardeau
This series, a retrospective celebrating the work of Québecois writer-director Philippe Falardeau, is part of the Twentieth-and Twenty-First-Century French and Francophone Studies Colloquium, an annual meeting of the largest interdisciplinary French Studies association in North America, with members from across the world. Constructed around the recurring theme of alienation, Falardeau’s work employs small-scale drama—often infused with wry humor and the dissident perspective of a cultural and linguistic minority within a larger nation—to explore the human consequences of and responses to global phenomena such as postindustrial capitalism, migration, and cross-cultural misunderstanding. In so doing, his work consistently emphasizes the necessity of solidarity and compassion in order to cope with the challenges of modern life and to understand one’s own identity in relation to the Other. The series is sponsored by the Department of French and Italian, the Mary-Margaret Barr Koon Fund, the College Arts and Humanities Institute, the Office of the Vice-President for International Affairs, the Institute for European Studies, and IU Cinema.
