Un pont au-dessus de l’océan
Saturday, August 12 - 6 pm
Cinéma du Musée
Director: Francis Fourcou
Osage and Occitan with French subtitles
Co-presented by Cinemania
The film evokes the fertile exchanges between two cultures: the Osage and the Occitan. Not to mix them up, but to shed light on the bridges that have linked them for decades, if not centuries. Two cultures, languages and historical tragedies that speak to each other, respond to each other and support each other in their resilience. We discover the reborn language of the Osages, via Osage poet Chelsea Tayrien, who travels to Occitan lands to meet another culture that is also fighting for its survival.
With filmmaker Francis Fourcou in attendance
