2016-2017 French Study Guide "My Revolution"
The free film study guide and the screening of "My revolution" across Ireland is a yearly joint project between the cultural services of the French Embassy and the IFI.
The chosen film for the 2016-2017 French Film Project is “My Revolution” by Ramzi Ben Slimane.
The Arab Spring of 2011 was sparked by the Jasmine Revolution of Tunisia. In Paris, people take to the streets in support, but 14-year-old Marwenn, though of Tunisian background, has no interest in politics. Then he stumbles upon a rally, gets his picture in the paper and suddenly he’s the coolest kid in school. Encouraged by his irascible grandfather, Marwenn travels to Tunisia on a journey of self-discovery in this charming and humorous film.
The Study guide of My Revolution , is available to download. This guides provides French Teachers with listening and writing activities that help their students to prepare for the Leaving Certificate.
