Activities resume at the Alliance Française of Soweto 



On the  23 March: (picture above)
Laurent Valera, visiting artist, hosted a workshop at Alliance Française of Soweto. Valera along with other Alliance Française staff worked on the concept of water and its significance in a number of ways. Valera, in particular, showed the many ways one can be creative with water by playing with light and darkness and reflections to create art.

The children, were mostly coming from Kliptown Youth Center and were absolutely mesmerized. As for Valera, he really enjoyed the experience.

The Alliance Française of Soweto was proud to welcome such a project as its first activity since its rebirth.

Trailer: The Nun 


Movie Club  - 26th April

The Nun, "La Religieuse"

France, in the 1760s. Born into a bourgeois family, Suzanne (Pauline Etienne) is a beautiful young girl with a natural talent for music. Despite her faith, she is dismayed when her parents send her off to a convent, expecting her to become a nun. Suzanne first resists the rules of the convent, but soon finds out that she is an illegitimate child, leaving her no other option than to pronounce her vows and suffer the consequences of her mother's sin. Adapted from Diderot's eponymous novel, The Nun tells the story of a woman trying to resist imposed religious values, revealing the dehumanizing effect of cloistered life.
