QUÉBEC FILM FESTIVAL: COMME UN CAILLOU DANS LA BOTTE/ LIKE A PEBBLE IN THE BOOT
March 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
(Documentary by Hélène Choquette, 1h10 min)
Hélène Choquette’s documentary research led her to this compelling story of Senegalese street vendors in Florence, who have migrated to Europe for economic reasons, hoping for a better future for their families. In order to survive in the Tuscan capital, these migrants resort to street vending, invisible to the eyes of the ten million tourists who visit each year. Filmed between Italy and Senegal, the documentary focuses on the situation of these economic migrants, complicated by the Italian financial crisis and the tidal wave of refugees seeking asylum.
The film is in English, with some French (and subtitles for the French). Snacks are provided. Parking is easy to find on campus.
