March 1, 2012


If you missed former Drexel Professor Ramesh Kajaria’s viewing of Incendies on Sunday, February 26th at 2:00 pm, consider checking the DVD or Blu-ray out from the library! If you’re not a member of the Burlington County Library System, check with your own library to see if they carry it or can get it for you.

This award-winning, Oscar-nominated film from Canada is in French w/English subtitles. 2010, rated R.

Synopsis: When their mother’s will implores them to deliver letters to the father they thought was dead and a brother they never knew about, twins Jeanne (Mélissa Désormeaux-Poulin) and Simon (Maxim Gaudette) journey to the Middle East and attempt to reconstruct their family’s hidden history. Adapted from a Wajdi Mouawad play, director Denis Villeneuve’s Oscar-nominated drama flashes back to intense scenes set during the Lebanese civil war in the 1970s.
