The film

Les Misérables dir. Ladj Ly (2019)

A cop from the provinces moves to Paris to join the Anti-Crime Brigade of Montfermeil, discovering an underworld where the tensions between the different groups mark the rhythm.

Black France on Film

The summer film series “Black France on Film” is organized by the Black France Consortium. On Wednesday evenings throughout July 2023, following the film projection, invited scholars, filmmakers, and leading public intellectuals will help animate a discussion on the cinematic representation of Black French experiences from the early twentieth century to the contemporary moment.

Black France Consortium

With an inaugural partnership among Dartmouth College, Columbia, Northeastern and Yale universities, the Black France Consortium is an inter-university initiative dedicated to foregrounding Black French Studies within a myriad of spaces and national contexts.

This series is co-sponsored by Columbia Global Centers | Paris, the Institute for Ideas and Imagination, the Columbia University African American and African Diaspora Studies Department, the Columbia University Society of Fellows at the Heyman Center for the Humanities, the Dartmouth College African and African American Studies Department, and the Dartmouth College Guarini Institute for International Education.

The place

For nearly sixty years, Columbia University students and faculty have come to study, teach, or pursue their research at Reid Hall, an exceptional space in the world of international education and cultural exchange. Our public events draw on the rich resources of the Columbia campus and our local partners, creating a "third space" of intellectual exploration and research that resists easy categorization. Our workshops, lectures, and performances bring together a diverse audience to address pressing issues through creative, rigorous, and open dialogue.

Today, Reid Hall is home to several Columbia University initiatives: Columbia Global Centers | Paris, Columbia Undergraduate Programs, M.A. in History and Literature, Columbia’s architecture program, and the Institute for Ideas and Imagination. This unique combination of resources is enhanced by our global network whose mission is to expand the University's engagement the world over through educational programs, research collaborations, regional partnerships, and public events.
