  • The African Doctor—A Family's Journey from Zaire to France, Friday, Feb. 22, 6:30 p.m., Leadership Auditorium, Student Center, sponsored by the Afro-Romance Institute. Originally titled Bienvenue à Marly-Gomont ( 2016), The African Doctor is based on the real-life experience of Seyolo Zantoko, a Congolese doctor who escapes the Mobutu dictatorship in 1975, and migrates to a small village in France. As the local physician, Zantoko and his family struggle to integrate into the rural, all-white community of Marly-Gomont. A light-hearted comedy, the film portrays the social realities of African migration with humor and pathos. Click for more info on events coming from the Afro-Romance Institute.
