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.

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.
