CinéCola is a community-wide French and Francophone Film Festival, which originated from a collaborative desire to bring recent French and Francophone films to South Carolina in an effort to promote the French language and the cultural diversity of the Francophone world. The festival committee is composed of dedicated faculty from the French Program at the University of South Carolina and the Modern Languages Division at Columbia College.
Gabrielle : Gabrielle is a young woman with Williams syndrome who has a contagious joie de vivre and an exceptional musical gift. Since she met her boyfriend, Martin, at the recreation centre where they are choir members, they have been inseparable. However, because they are "different," their loved ones are fearful of their relationship. As the choir prepares for an important music festival, Gabrielle does everything she can to gain her independence. As determined as she is, Gabrielle must still confront other people's prejudices as well as her own limitations in the hope of experiencing a love far from the "ordinary." Screening is followed by a Q & A and reception. $10 / Free to Museum members and students with a valid ID.
