French Film Club Ponders Racial Equality

Students in York Prep’s French Film Club viewed the French film “La Marche” on March 5. Two juniors and one sophomore attended with their French teacher Ms. Jennifer Campo.

Directed by Nabil Ben Yadir, the film describes a 930-mile march against racism across France during the Mitterand-era in 1983. A group of nine people begin the march in Marseilles and are welcomed in Paris by 100,000 demonstrators who share their concern for equality.

Students commented on how inspired they were by the film’s message of equality and commitment to fighting for a cause.
