Tuesday 26 June – 6.30pm 
Admission free

Come discover an American French story at the Irish premiere screening of the award-winning documentary Le Choix de Théo (2018). The film tells the story of the French language in Louisiana and shows how state government has used education to save their heritage language. The film brings awareness to the American francophone reality/identity but also to the challenges facing the American education system.
The screening will be followed by a talk with  French director Mikaël Espinasse who lived in Lafayette, the heart of Cajun French Louisiana, where he worked with French speaking communities (acadians, créoles, and indigenous) and met key players in the rebirth of the French language in Louisiana: teachers, activists, politicians, students and parents.
