Friday, October 12 2012


MOSCOW, Idaho – The following is a list of University of Idaho sponsored events for the week of Oct. 15-21. Events will take place in Moscow and are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.

Tuesday, Oct. 16
Tournées French Film Festival 2012
7-9 p.m.
Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre
508 S. Main St. in Moscow
The third annual Tournées French Film Festival is an event put on by the University of Idaho and Washington State University’s language departments that joins the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre to showcase five recent French films for five Tuesday evenings starting Sept. 18. The fifth and final film in the series will be Le herisson – or the Hedgehog. The film follows Paloma, a serious and highly articulate but deeply bored 11-year-old who has decided to kill herself on her 12th birthday. Fascinated by art and philosophy, she questions and documents her life and immediate circle, drawing trenchant and often hilarious observations on the world around her. But as her appointment with death approaches, Paloma finally meets some kindred spirits in her building’s grumpy janitor and an enigmatic, elegant neighbor, both of whom inspire Paloma to question her rather pessimistic outlook on life. Tickets cost $4 at the door but admission is free to all University of Idaho and Washington State University students with their student ID card. For more information, visit www.kenworthy.org.
