FREE (Ticket Required)

A View of Love/ Un balcon sur la mer will be preceded at 4.30pm by an introductory lecture by Dr Fiona Barclay, Lecturer in French at the University of Stirling.

A view of love/ Un balcon sur la mer illustrates how the nostalgia of the French settlers who lived in Algeria before it became independent opens the door to the unexpected return of the past. The lecture unpacks the emotional and historical attachments which linked Algeria to France for over a century, and which continue to shape the lives of millions living in France today.

Lecture and film showing supported by the AHRC as part of the AHRC project, ‘Representations of the French settlers of Algeria’.
