You will be asked to read the short story and prepare to discuss it as well as watch the movie at home available on YouTube or Amazon Prime for a small fee. We will spend our morning discussing the short story and after a brief lunch/walk break, we will rejoin the zoom session to discuss the movie based on the short story.
We will provide some context, vocabulary, and questions ahead of time to assist you as you prepare.

Résumé 
Source: Gallimard
Daru, jeune instituteur né en Algérie, vit dans son école, au cœur des hauts plateaux. Il fait la classe à des enfants arabes venus des hameaux environnants. Un jour d’hiver, le gendarme Balducci lui confie un prisonnier arabe en lui donnant l’ordre de le convoyer jusqu’à la ville voisine pour le livrer à la justice. Daru a beau refuser la mission, le gendarme s’en va et laisse là le prisonnier.
