9/18/2017 – Dernières nouvelles du Cosmos – Tournées Film Festival (6:00pm – 8pm) in the Library Events Area
Can a person incapable of speaking or writing somehow produce beautiful literature? In Latest News From the Cosmos (Derniere nouvelles du cosmos), director Julie Bertuccelli answers that question in the affirmative, documenting the remarkable story of Helene Nicolas, aka Babouillec, a severely autistic 30-year-old French woman who manages to convey her deepest inner thoughts through a unique form of poetic wordplay. Both inspirational and informative, this touching creative portrait received a small theatrical release in France and should find additional bookings on the fest circuit, with possibilities for screenings at educational and institutional outfits.
