Wednesday, August 31 the independent film, “Le Grand Voyage” will be shown at the library at 6:30 p.m. A few weeks before his college entrance exams, Reda (Nicholas Cazale), a young man who lives in the south of France, finds himself obligated to drive his father to Mecca. The wide cultural and generational gap between the two is worsened by their lack of communication. Reda finds it hard to accommodate his father, who demands respect for himself and his pilgrimage. From France, through Italy, Serbia, Turkey, Syria, Jordan to Saudia Arabia, the two embark on a road trip that will change their lives. This film is from France and Morocco in Arabic and French with English subtitles. For more
information call the library at 334-3490.
