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.

Filmmaker Michael R Roskam, nominated for an Oscar for Bullhead, reteams with lead actor, Matthias Schoenaerts, for a love story set in the glamorous world of motor racing. He is Gigi, a violent bank robber who falls for the charms of female racing driver Bibi, Adèle Exarchopoulos, who has no idea that the new man in her life is a criminal.
Roskam’s intense, character-driven drama, which unfolds in three parts, is a gritty tale of an unlikely romance with charismatic lead performances.
