French film ‘Sarah’s Key’ to be shown at CCU

"Sarah's Key", a 2010 French film starring Kristin Scott Thomas, will be presented at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, in the James J. Johnson Auditorium (formerly Wall Auditorium) at Coastal Carolina University. The film, adopted from the book by Tatiana de Rosnay, is free and open to the public.

Alternating between modern day and WW II-era Paris, "Sarah's Key" is about a woman's inquiry into the history of her father's childhood as well as horrors the Vichy government perpetrated against the Jewish population of France. She (Kristin Scott Thomas) uncovers the story of Sarah Starzynski and her fight to escape Nazi captors and return to save her hidden younger brother.

This event is sponsored by CCU's Office of International Programs and the Jackson Family Center for Ethics & Values, which will host a discussion of ethical questions raised by the film. For more information, contact 843-349-2054.
