French Students Meet Director of Oscar-Nominated Swiss Film

Three French classes (the advanced courses) went to an event sponsored by the Cultural Services of the French Consulate for Bay Area high school students and organized by the San Francisco Film Society’s Youth Education Program. We saw the film “Sister” directed by Ursula Meier, and the film will be shown at the Oscars this year. We were very fortunate that the director of the film was present and answered questions that students had about the film (most of them in French). Her comments were insightful and definitely led to a better understanding of this rather complex film. The director, Ursula Meier, is in the front of the picture, slightly to the left. –Elisabeth, French Teacher
