Meredith College’s 2011-12 International Film Festival continues on February 8, 2012, with “Moolaade.”

Film Description:

Disobeying the elders, Colle listens to the radio for news from the outside world. This winner of a Special Mention Prize at the Cannes Festival gives a humorous view of a controversial issue that still affects millions of women around the world. SENEGAL-FRANCE-BURKINA/2004. 124 mins. In French and Bambara with English subtitles. Directed by Ousmane Sembene.
