Barbarian Invasions screens locally 

Screening at Saint Mary's University French Film Club on Wednesday

One of the great Canadian films, well, ever, screens on Wednesday, March 23 at 7pm in McNally Main 201 at Saint Mary's University. (It's off Robie, check this out for directions.) The screening is a courtesy of the SMU French Film Club.

The film is The Barbarian Invasions (2003), the Quebecois comedy-drama directed by Denys Arcand and the sequel to Arcand's earlier film The Decline of the American Empire, (though it isn't necessary to have seen the earlier film to appreciate this one).

The film won France's 2004 Cesar Award for Best Picture and Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for Denys Arcand. It also won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, the first Canadian film to win the award, in 2004. At the 2003 Cannes Film Festival, it won awards for Best Screenplay and Best Actress.

The film is subtitled. Snacks are provided, all are welcome. For more information about the SMU French Film Club screenings, contact Shana McGuire at
