The Francophone Studies certificate programs present a free showing of Jacque Tati’s modernist classic “Play Time” on Feb. 1, at 7 p.m. at The Athena, downtown Athens.

 Jacques Tati’s comedy about confusion in an age of high technology, features the lovably old-fashioned Monsieur Hulot, along with a host of other lost souls, who are thrust into a baffling modern world in Paris. A fantastic film about being French, being modern and being bewildered. Film is in French with English subtitles. Discussion immediately following film.

For more information, contact Dr. Judith Grant, Professor and Chair of Political Science.
