Cinema Maghreb & Immigration

This course will study the historical and cultural aspects of the Maghreb and immigration though cinema. It will explore the double image that characterizes this type of cinema. The first image will focus on the French vision of the Maghreb and its representation in France’s former colonies. The second image will focus on Maghrebian directors and their vision of their societies. We will also explore the integration in France of the second generation of immigrants (the ""Beurs""), especially issues of citizenship, exile, etc. Examples will be taken from films such as: Julien Duvivier’s ""Pépé le Moko"", Gillo Pontecorvo ‘s ""La Bataille d'Alger"", M. Allouache ‘s ""Omar"", C. Ruggia ‘s ""Le Gone du Chaaba"", Y. Benguigui ‘s ""Inchallah dimanche"" and A. Kechiche’s ""La Graine et le mulet"", among others.
