He Even Has Your Eyes
February 1, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Lifetime Learning Center at Craven Community College is pleased to present the comedy “He Even Has Your Eyes” (Belgium 2016) as part of Explorations: The International Film Series. This film is not rated.
When the French-African couple Paul and Sali discover the longed-for baby they are about to adopt is white, family chaos and confrontation ensue. With joy, Paul and Sali adopt the baby but initially keep his ethnicity a secret from their family. On the one side, there is a social worker whose prejudice drives her surprise visits, seeking faults in the home or familial environment, and on the other is the baby’s adopted grandmother, who exaggerates everything! Luckily, she does this to great comic effect. This film brings to light obvious assumptions people hold about race and culture – and turn them on their head!
This year’s international film selections will be presented on the first Friday of every month from September to November and January to April. Each film has two show times, one a matinee at 2:30 p.m. the other an evening screening at 7:30 p.m. All events take place in Orringer Auditorium on the New Bern Campus. All are welcome. Admission is Free! Donations directly support the film series.
