“The Heart of Madame Sabali” is a dramatic film with touches of absurdist comedy, and features surrealist dream sequences and a colorful art design. The story is based on the scientific concept of cellular memory, the idea that cells contain memories, and that organ recipients sometimes take on the personality traits of their donors.
Director Ryan McKenna will lead the post-screening discussion. Sponsors for this event include the French Program and the Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures.
