Visual Arts Center, Kresge Auditorium

In the aftermath of the attacks in Paris at the beginning of this month, the Bowdoin French Club, the Famille Francophone, will be holding a public screening of Daniel Leconte's 2008 documentary, C'est Dur D'être Aimé Par Des Cons (“It’s tough being loved by jerks”). The film follows the 2006 court case that was brought against the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in the wake of their decision to publish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad. It will be shown in French with English subtitles, with discussion to follow in English.  

The movie offers fascinating and unprecedented insight behind the scenes at this controversial publication. It also raises important questions about free speech and satire in France, a country with very different laws concerning freedom of expression. The discussion will provide an opportunity to reflect on these questions as well as the social and political consequences of recent events.

The Bowdoin Famille Francophone (aka “Bowdoin French Club”) is a student-run organization operating under the auspices of the Bowdoin Student Government. It seeks to promote Francophone values, culture and interests to the wider Bowdoin College community.
