Identity, gender and sustainability: a series of films tackling three important and topical social issues. Auditorium. Sunday 17 March 2024 at 4.30 PM to 6 PM.

MEG's Sunday films continue for another season, focusing on three essential and topical themes: identity, gender and sustainability.

Documentary, fiction and animated films addressing these themes are shown free of charge in the Museum's Auditorium on several Sundays each month.

Once again, MEG is partnering the Green Film Festival for a screening.

Film: The Parralel Currents, by Pablo Chavanel, 68mn, France.

The proliferation of hydroelectric dams on the Mekong River, designed to supply energy to neighbouring megalopolises, is forcing Samnang, the leader of an indigenous community, to fight for his survival and that of nature. Faced with pressure from the authorities, Samnang is prepared to take any risk.
Meanwhile, in the Cambodian capital, Sothy, a painter and survivor of the Khmer Rouge genocide, applies himself to the duty of remembrance and, through his art, reveals a violence that seems to be repeating itself.

Trailer.

Film in original version with French subtitles.
