6th April 2017
Last Tuesday, our TY, 5th and 6th year students of French attended an Irish Film Institute screening of ‘Ma Revolution’ in the Roscommon Arts Centre.
The Arab Spring of 2011 was sparked by the Jasmine Revolution of Tunisia. In Paris, people take to the streets in support, but 14-year-old Marwenn, though of Tunisian background, has no interest in politics. Then he stumbles upon a rally, gets his picture in the paper and suddenly he’s the coolest kid in school. Encouraged by his grandfather, Marwenn travels to Tunisia on a journey of self-discovery in this charming and humorous film.
The film ends in suspense, as we don’t find out what exactly lies in store for Marwenn. Despite this fact, our students thoroughly enjoyed the film.
Thanks to Ms.Shanley for organising this event and to the staff of the Arts Centre.
