"Diva" to be Screened at UWG

As Paris has long been a major destination for art, literature, intellectual achievement and romantic adventure, the French and Francophone film series’ theme this fall is “Paris!!!”  
 “Diva”, a cult sensation when it was released in 1981, has lost none of its innovation and appeal.  With intrigue, murder, romance and a celebrated chase scene through the Paris metro, “Diva” continues to thrill viewers today.  Winner of five Cesar awards, including Best Musical Score, Best Screenplay and Best First film, “Diva” is a delight.      The movie trailer is best viewed with the sound turned up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PDM-i7pzeI  “Diva” will be screened Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. in the University Suites Community Building, located between Row Hall and the Education Center.  To find this on the campus map, select “University Suites” from the Residence Halls list at http://www.westga.edu/index_map.php  Admission is free and open to the public.  As an added bonus, all spectators are eligible for the drawing of a signature Chanel shopping bag with makeup and a bottle of Yves Saint Laurent perfume to be awarded at the end of the film!    The Department of Foreign Languages & Literatures is pleased to host this event with FLAIR, the new on-campus foreign language living and learning community.
