Filmmaker Pankaj Rishi Kumar is coming to Lafayette to present and discuss his documentary film, Two Flags.
Two Flags chronicles the life and politics of a quaint French town: Pondicherry. As the 4600 Tamil French people belonging to the Tamil ethnic community, gear up for the French Presidential elections (2017) the film explores the idea of identity, citizenship and home in the postcolonial era. Two Flags is a chronicle of a legacy that is not easily evident, but manages to shine through ordinary events and occasional mishaps, and which brings together this tiny population in celebration, in grief, in anxiety and in serene acceptance.
Free for all! No tickets required.
