The Tournées Festival is a program of FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, which aims to bring contemporary French cinema to American college and university campuses.
“Curling” is set in a bleak, rural town in Quebec, and focuses on the odd, touching relationship between Jean-François and his 12-year-old daughter, Julyvonne. Julyvonne, confined to the house by her pathologically overprotective father, keeps herself occupied by reading and, occasionally, by talking to the corpses she finds in the woods near her home. After the arrival of Isabelle, their relationship will take another direction.
This event is presented by the Department of Romance Languages at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
