Colette et Justin / Colette and Justin

Monday, January 29, 2024 - 12:00 am to Sunday, February 4, 2024 - 11:59 pm

Register to stream films for free at: https://forms.gle/woajh1LbxfTCAhbM6. Join the following Monday night film discussion.

Born in Kinshasa and living in Paris, filmmaker Alain Kassanda embodies the classic immigrant dual identity: in the Democratic Republic of Congo he is seen as French, while in France he is seen as Congolese. Kassanda convinces his grandparents—Colette and Justin—to sit for a series of interviews that become an evocative, poetic and thoughtful meditation on the intersection of political and family history, and the multi-generational destructive reach of colonialism.

Don't miss the discussion with director Alain Kassanda on Monday, February 5 at 7:00 PM!

Location: Rod 301 (ScholarSpace) and online (via Zoom)

Best Suited for Grades: K-5
Duration: 50 minutes
Curriculum: Language Arts, Leadership & Responsibility, History
Study Guide: Access the complimentary teacher's guide HERE.

Tomás and the Library Lady tell the true story of Tomás Rivera, a Chicano author, poet and educator who found an unlikely friend in a librarian when he was a young boy. Riviera’s empowering story inspired Pat Mora to write a book telling his story. 

Tomás, the son of migrant workers, was born in Texas and loves the stories Papa Grande tells to him. One day while his family is in Iowa picking crops, Tomás meets the Library Lady and nothing is ever the same again. Soon his imagination takes off as he reads book after book, discovering a world filled with dinosaurs, tigers, and explorers! Childsplay brings back this bilingual play with music for a brand new audience.

Tomás and the Library Lady was written by José Gonsález, based on the book by Pat Mora.
