Film: Des Hommes et des Dieux 

When: Sat., Feb. 22, 8:30 p.m. 2014
Price: Free and open to the public.
Xavier Beauvois’s tale of faith and doubt based on a real incident from 1996. Eight French Trappist monks settle in an impoverished village in Algeria, offering medical assistance and gaining the locals’ trust by taking part in Muslim traditions.Their harmony is disrupted by the Armed Islamic Group (GIA), fundamentalist terrorists who demand that the monks leave. Not wanting to abandon the destitute citizens, the monks decide to stay. As the film leads up to the monks’ inevitable doom, Beauvois considers the intransigence of religious belief: both for his white-robed martyrs and their brutal captors. In the Ogeechee Theatre/Student Union. Part of Armstrong's Francophile Film Festival.
