French film series coming to Bloomsburg University

A series of six French films will be shown at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania during the fall semester. The series, which is free to attend and open to the public, features a different film every two weeks on Thursdays at 7 p.m. in  McCormick Hall, room 2303.
The first film, being shown on Sept. 12, is “La Vie en rose,” the Oscar-winning 2007 story of the life of French singer Edith Piaf, who lived from 1915 to 1963. Her life is depicted in a back-and-forth, non-chronological series of memories and flashbacks. The film was directed by Olivier Dahan and stars Marion Cotillard, Gérard Depardieu and Emmanuelle Seigner.
Other films in the series are:
- “L’Auberge espagnole (The Spanish Apartment),” Sept. 26
