Cinema-monde: Film, Borders, Translation

Spring 2018 Grant Recipient


Alison Levine (French)

I am currently working on documentary films from within and outside of France that address trauma suffered by migrants and asylum seekers in Europe. I plan a trip to Scotland to share some of my work in a small workshop that includes an invited collection of international scholars focused on an emerging, globally-oriented field called "cinema-monde." The term 'cinema-monde' has developed in recent years to respond to a shift in both the Francophone film industry and the way in which Francophone film is studied. In Paris, I plan to conduct several interviews with filmmakers working on this topic.
