all levels are welcome!
This option will be based on a donation (suggested donation $5).


3rd step: Depending on the success of this workshop, and when any viral risk is ruled out, we will be able to continue a quarterlyfilm screening, for example at the Fig Garden library, always followed by a discussion, accompanied by drinks and snacks, and/or continue the online broadcasts followed by a mini discussion once a month if you like this offer. 

The cost of this option will be determined in Board meeting

We are in the aftermath of World War II. Claude, 10 years old and the son of communist French Resistance fighters, has lost his mother who died at Auschwitz. Ben, 14, is the son of a prostitute and a small-time Jewish hoodlum. With the help of Françoise Dolto, the two young boys confront the demons that haunt them. They meet through her, become friends, share an outstanding adventure together and then separate to live opposing lives. We follow these two cases, along with the treatment of other children with severe problems and the daily work of an outstanding doctor who invented a discipline: psychoanalysis for children.

Emma, a young woman who is not yet 18 years old, packs up her belongings and prepares to leave the convent to marry the man her farmer father has arranged as her husband: country doctor Charles Bovary. However, she becomes bored and miserable in the small, provincial town of Yonville. She spends most of her time alone, reading or wandering in the garden while

Charles tends to patients. Even when he is home, Emma feels bored or neglected by Charles. Emma longs for more — excitement, passion, status, and love. She shows restraint at first, when smitten law clerk Leon Dupuis skittishly professes his affections for her. However, she is intrigued by the dashing Marquis, who makes more overt advances. Their affair emboldens her as she believes it gives her glimpse of the good life. She spends money she does not have on lavish dresses and decorations from the obsequious dry-goods dealer Monsieur Lheureux, who is all too happy to continue extending her credit.
