TournEes French Film Festival 

Jan. 18, 19, 25 and 26; Feb. 1 and 2

While watching movies in a language you don't speak, squinting at subtitles can get tedious, but the discomfort is balanced by the way foreign words take familiar things and make them beautifully alien. Such will be the case at the inaugural Boise State University Tournees French Film Festival, which will show six French films over the next few weeks. Hosted by the Boise State World Languages Department and the Idaho Film Collection, and funded by the French-American Cultural Exchange foundation, the festival is free and open to the public. Films will include April and the Extraordinary World (Jan. 18), School of Babel (Jan. 19), As I Open My Eyes (Jan. 25), Hippocrates: Diary of a French Doctor (Jan. 26), Black Girl (Feb. 1) and May Allah Bless France! (Feb. 2).
