Fanny's Journey

Based on a true story, this is an incredible tale of bravery, strength and survival, a story of a daring young girl who will stop at nothing and fear no one. In 1943, 13-year old Fanny and her younger sisters were sent from their home in France to an Italian foster home for Jewish children. When the Nazis arrive in Italy, their caretakers desperately organize the departure of the children to Switzerland. When they are suddenly left on their own, these 11 children do the impossible and reach the Swiss border to freedom.

This workshop will focus on the works of the Common European Framework of Reference and on textbooks offered by European publishers*. The objective is to see how to supplement textbook contents with teacher-developed materials such as resources lists, activity lists and assessment plan.

Participants will examine model teaching units that involve all communication skills and will create their own lesson plans based on the specificities of their audience and their curriculum.

They will also reflect on the relevance of an ongoing evaluation vs. a test schedule.

At the end of the workshop, participants will develop a self-contained unit including essential goals, activities, formative and summative assessment, and rubrics.

Note: Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their laptop or tablet since they will make ample use of the internet.

Galette des Rois: A Sweet French Tradition 

From "French as you like it"

You thought the French food fest was over now that Christmas and New Year’s Eve was behind us? Think again. With the arrival of January comes a national obsession with the galette des rois – the “king cake.”
[If have been in France at that time of the year], you’ve probably noticed this scrumptious-looking cake, usually topped with a golden paper crown, in your local boulangerie (bakery), pâtisserie (pastry shop), or supermarché (supermarket) since mid-December. It’s flaky, sweet and best served when warm, straight out of the oven.
But the pleasure brought by a galette des rois isn’t merely due to its delicious taste – it’s also the anticipation of wondering whether you will be the lucky one to discover la fève, a tiny charm, buried inside one of the slices. If you are, you’re “king for a day” and take your place in a 700-year old French tradition.

History

The French have been serving up galette des rois  since the 14th-century. Traditionally, it’s served on January 6th – the 12th day of Christmas – to celebrate the Epiphany, a religious feast day commemorating the arrival of the Three Kings to the manger where Jesus was born. Today, it’s eaten throughout the month of January and is simply a festive way to celebrate the new year with family and friends, regardless of religious background.
You’ll typically find two basic styles of galette des rois: In northern France, it’s made of pâte feuilleté, puff pastry, and stuffed with a dense, creamy almond paste called frangipane. In the south of France, you’ll be eating a brioche-style cake covered with candied fruit. Other variations can be found as well, from shortbread-style, popular in Western France, to those that have alternate fillings, such as chocolat-poire (chocolate-pear) or raspberry.

Serving Traditions

Tradition dictates that when serving galette des rois, the entire cake should be divided such that each guest receives a slice, plus an extra, symbolic slice for any unexpected visitor, or poor person, that should pass by. In this way, everyone has the opportunity to “tirer les rois,” – or “draw the kings” – from the cake.
The “king” is represented by the fève, once a fava bean, now a porcelain or plastic figurine, hidden inside the cake. The person who discovers the fève in their serving is declared le roi (the king) or la reine (the queen) and gets to wear the golden paper couronne (crown) that comes with cake. In some families, le roi or la reine gets to choose a royal counterpart and is tapped to buy the next galette des rois.
Kids and adults alike can get surprisingly enthusiastic about the winning of the fève – many people collect them – and playful accusations of cheating might occur. To avoid this, it is traditional during the slicing of the galette to have the youngest child at the gathering slip underneath the table to call out the name of the person to receive each slice so the server can’t be accused of playing favorites!

FRENCH MOVIES

DALIDA

Dalida1.jpg

Screening - 11/3 & 11/6
Director: Lisa Azuelos
Summary: Born in Egypt into an Italian family, Dalida (real name Iolanda Gigliotti) was one of France’s most famous singers from the late 1950s through to the 1980s, and became a legend in the disco boom. The stylish biopic follows Dalida’s tragic private life and singing career which also saw her sell 170 million records worldwide. DALIDA is magnificently melodramatic and brimming with stunning musical moments and near to perfectly replicated costuming.

DJANGO

Django2.jpg

Screening - 11/3 & 11/5
Director: Etienne Comar
Summary: France in 1943 during the German occupation. Every night, guitarist and composer Django Reinhardt delights Parisian audiences with his witty, life-affirming ‘gypsy swing’ music. While many other Romany people are finding themselves the target of racist persecution and being murdered in concentration camps, Django believes himself to be safe due to his popularity – until agents of the Nazi propaganda machine demand that he goes on tour to Germany in order to counteract the influence of ‘negro music’ from the USA. Django Reinhardt refuses. A Parisian admirer helps him, his pregnant wife and his mother to hide out in a village close to the Swiss border. But when they try to cross Lake Geneva into Switzerland the family is pursued by the Nazis. DJANGO is the portrayal of an unconventional artist and free spirit whose life was as improvised as his music.

CORPORATE

Corporate1.jpg

Screening - 11/3 & 11/6
Director: Nicolas Silhol
Summary: Emilie is a bright young workaholic manager in Human Resources, working for a huge French agro-food company. Ambitious and dedicated to her job, she is a good soldier, ready to put ruthless methods of management into practice to meet the higher-ups' requirements. But, one day, one of the employees commits suicide at the company in front of her. Afflicted by the terrific death of her colleague, she will eventually realize that the company has to take its responsibility too. While an investigation in underway, stuck between her traumatized colleagues and under pressure of a powerful hierarchy, she will have to get by on her own.

NOT ON MY WATCH

Not1.jpg

Screening Screening: 11/4 & 11/5
Director: Emmanuelle Cuau
Summary: In this fine, French, neo-noir film the suspense steadily builds as a single mother struggles to make ends meet. While she looks for gainful employment to keep the wolves at bay, her oldest son falls in with a gang of criminals and leads the wolf pack straight into their lives. Before she even knows what’s happened the entire family is entangled in a web of deceit and lies. Will she be able to protect her family, or are they fated for a life of crime, or worse?

SOUVENIR

Souvenir1.jpg

Screening: 11/3 & 11/6
Liliane was once “Laura”, a rising star in the singing world, who had her moment of glory when she finished second in the 1974 European Song Contest behind Abba. Today, everyone has forgotten her brush with fame, and she works in a meat factory. But when she meets Jean, a 21-year-old boxer, her dreary life is suddenly turned upside down. He falls in love with her, and convinces her she should make a return to the stage.

Mardi Gras & Yummy Crêpes !
Feb
28
6:00 PM18:00

Mardi Gras & Yummy Crêpes !

Un peu de Gourmandise...

  • Temps de préparation : 10 minutes
  • Temps de cuisson : 20 minutes

Ingrédients (pour 15 crêpes) :

- 300 g de farine
- 3 oeufs entiers
- 3 cuillères à soupe de sucre
- 2 cuillères à soupe d'huile
- 50 g de beurre fondu
- 75 cl de lait
- 5 cl de rhum
 

Préparation de la recette :


Mettre la farine dans une terrine et former un puits. 

Y déposer les oeufs entiers, le sucre, l'huile et le beurre.

Mélanger délicatement avec un fouet en ajoutant au fur et à mesure le lait. La pâte ainsi obtenue doit avoir une consistance d'un liquide légèrement épais. 

Parfumer de rhum.

Faire chauffer une poêle antiadhésive et la huiler très légèrement. Y verser une louche de pâte, la répartir dans la poêle puis attendre qu'elle soit cuite d'un côté avant de la retourner. Cuire ainsi toutes les crêpes à feu doux.

Remarques :

Avantage de cette recette : pas besoin d'ajouter de l'huile dans la poêle à chaque crêpe, ce qui leur donne un meilleur goût et une belle couleur.

Elle étudie la danse flamenca en parallèle depuis une douzaine d’années, auprès de maîtres comme Manuela Carpio, Andres Peña, Maria del Mar Moreno, Marco Flores, la Lupi, la Chiqui, el Grillo, Jose Galvan ou Manolo Marin. Anne-Lise a reçu en 2016 une bourse du Mécénat Musical de la Société Générale pour perfectionner cette discipline à Jerez de la Frontera.

Elle pratique le chant par l’abord lyrique dans un premier temps, puis flamenco et actuel professionnellement.

Elle a développé une expérience large dans les orchestres de chambre et symphoniques (notamment boursière de l‘association Aïda pour des concerts avec le Capitole de Toulouse sous la baguette de Tugan Sokhiev) et en musique de chambre, particulièrement en quatuor à cordes, discipline qu’elle a approfondi auprès de Yovan Markovitch en Master de Musique de Chambre au CNSMDL.

Elle est membre-interprète de la Compagnie Arcosm depuis 2015 où elle se produit au sein du spectacle Sublime en tant que danseuse contemporaine, formée par le chorégraphe Thomas Guerry, danseuse flamenco, altiste et chanteuse.
Elle a co-créé divers spectacles tels que Sarabanda por Buleria, entre l’univers baroque et celui du flamenco, ou Ma poupée sur la balançoire, entre musiques contemporaines et danse flamenco, claquettes et contemporaines.

Anne-Lise est engagée dans l’improvisation et l’imprégnation de musiques traditionnelles ; elle a récemment collaboré avec des artistes tels que Jean-Didier Hoareau ou le maestro Ezequiel Benitez.

Elle a entamé depuis l’année passée un travail poétique et multidisciplinaire avec sa talentueuse partenaire artistique Johanna Elalouf et le grand poète kanak Denis Pourawa au sein du collectif E.U.P ! (Etat d’Urgence Poétique).

Aujourd’hui la Mariposa Negra cristallise la multitude de ses facettes artistiques, portée par le guitariste et compositeur Benjamin Nicola et le contrebassiste et guitariste de musiques classique et jazz Christophe Gauvert, infatigables chercheurs d’images sonores.

La Galette des Rois 

The galette des rois is a cake traditionally shared at Epiphany, on 6 January. It celebrates the arrival of the Three Wise Men in Bethlehem.
Composed of a puff pastry cake, with a small charm, the fève, hidden inside, it is usually filled with frangipane, a cream made from sweet almonds, butter, eggs and sugar. But more gourmet versions are available for us to enjoy, with chocolate, apple or candied fruits. Every year, the leading French pâtissiers offer exclusive creations for the tradition of crowning the one who finds the fève.
— French Embassy in Ottawa, Canada

A celebration will take place during the weekend of January 7-8, 2017. Join us to enjoy a nice piece of Galette and celebrate with others this very French tradition.
