College of Central Florida to host free screening of award-winning film ‘Petite Maman’

The College of Central Florida’s Ira Holmes International Film Series will continue next week with two free screenings of the award-winning 2021 film “Petite Maman.”

Directed by Céline Sciamma, “Petite Maman” is a PG-rated film that transcends time and space to weave a delicate fable about grief, family, and connection across generations.

In the wake of her grandmother’s death, 8-year-old Nelly accompanies her distraught mother to her childhood home. While there, Nelly’s encounter with another young girl brings mother and daughter together in a way that neither could have ever imagined.

“Evoking childhood’s perpetual state of wonder through luminous, richly textured images, ‘Petite Maman’ takes viewers on a journey inward for a quietly miraculous tale of emotional time travel,” stated the College of Central Florida in a media release.

The first screening will begin at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, February 13 at the Appleton Museum of Art (4333 E Silver Springs Boulevard), and it is free to all museum and film series members. Nonmembers will pay the museum admission fee.

Later in the evening, at 7 p.m., a second screening will begin at the College of Central Florida’s Ocala Campus (3001 SW College Road, Building 8, Room 110). This screening is free and open to the public.
