French film "Le Trou" at BYU film series Dec. 5

Brigham Young University's Harold B. Lee Library will host a free screening of the film "Le Trou" Thursday (Dec. 5) at 5 p.m. in the library auditorium.

Translated "The Hole," this 1960 suspense thriller is the final film in the library's French Film Series.

The film tells the story of five men in a French prison tunneling to freedom. Days before they are to escape, one of the men is set free on parole. The last of director Jacques Becker's works, "Le Trou" can be understood on many levels, from a simple action story to a symbolic illustration of teamwork and collective struggles.

"The French Film Series adds another way for students to learn French in a fun way they can relate to," says Richard Hacken, European Studies Librarian.

The Harold B. Lee Library rotates through languages in each of its film series. The French series began when the Spanish series ended, and plans are being made for an Italian series next year.

Contact Richard Hacken at (801) 422-2374 for more information.
