Soirée de film: Ténor
November 3, 2022 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Espaces francophones for Soirée de film (movie night) to watch Ténor.
While working part-time as a food deliveryman, Antoine, an aspiring young rapper from the suburbs of Paris, meets Mrs. Loyseau, an eminent teacher at the Paris Opéra. Stunned by the young man’s raw talent, she introduces him to the world of opera. As Antoine becomes one of Mrs. Loyseau’s students, he hides his new dream from his friends and family, fearing that they won’t understand – this double life burdens him… Somewhere in between the gilded and uptight Parisian upper-class, and the harsh yet free-spirited and familiar suburbs he grew up in, Antoine will have to find his own voice.
The movie is in French with English subtitles. No registration is required.
About Espaces francophones
The project Espaces francophones will offer French-language cultural and social activities to students in the French-speaking minority community of UBC Okanagan throughout the school year with the goal of highlighting and facilitating spaces for Francophone socialization and exchange. This community-building effort also aims to strengthen the ties between Francophones and their cultures in the greater Okanagan region. Espaces francophones aims to increase accessibility to the various Francophone activities in the region by directly targeting students.
Espaces francophones is an initiative of the Okanagan School of Education (OSE) and the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies (FCCS).
