2018 International Film Festival Starts

The Allegheny College Department of Modern and Classical Languages will present its free 2018 International Film Festival, a five-week series of foreign films to be shown at The Movies at Meadville at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays between Jan. 31 and Feb. 28.

The series begins on Jan. 31 with the 2017 French film “Faces Places” in which 89-year-old Agnes Varda and 33-year-old French photographer and muralist JR team up to co-direct this documentary. They travel through the villages of France in JR’s photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories, and producing portraits of the villagers. The movie documents these encounters as well as the unlikely friendship the filmmakers formed along the way.
