6:30 PM to 8:00 PM: Claire Denis’s scalding examination of the abuse of power and the sin of looking the other way may be the year’s most unforgettable film noir. Inspired by William Faulkner’s 1931 novel, Sanctuary, and the Sadean sex parties attended by Dominique Strauss-Kahn and other French higherups, Bastards centers on a revenge plot that begins tenuously but grows only more inexorable. Sea captain Marco (Vincent Lindon) reluctantly returns to Paris to assist his disgraced sister, Sandra (Julie Bataille): Her husband has just committed suicide, and her daughter, Justine (Lola Créton), is recovering in a clinic for participation in carnal acts so extreme that she may require a series of delicate operations. Convinced that Edouard LaPorte (Michel Subor), a DSK-like figure, is linked to both incidents, Marco plans his retaliation by stealthily ingratiating himself with LaPorte’s much younger wife (Chiara Mastroianni). Film and discussion are free and open to the public.Information: cooker@fau.edu

7:00 PM to 8:30 PM: The School of Communication and Multimedia Studies will sponsor a public lecture by Dr. Vadim Golubev, Associate Professor and Head of the Department of English for the Faculty of Journalism at St. Petersburg State University, St. Petersburg, Russia. Dr. Golubev will speak on “Media Discourse: Public Diplomacy or Citizen Diplomacy?” In his lecture, Dr. Golubev will demonstrate that media can build bridges between people and nations; it can effectively act as a driving force of international diplomacy. To achieve this goal, however, media can either undertake the role of a cultural propagandist on behalf of their country’s government (public diplomacy) or act as a bridge between the two countries fostering mutual understanding by promoting not only their own country, but other countries as well, even if it means subverting their own government’s foreign policy (citizen diplomacy). In his talk, Dr. Golubev will discuss the choices US and Russian journalists make resolving this dilemma today.Lecture is free and open to the public.Map of campus at https://www.fau.edu/facilities/osua/maps/BocaRatonMap.pdfInformation: 561-297-3851
