L
’Organisation Internationale
de la Francophonie (OIF)
représente l’une des plus importante zone linguistique dans le monde.
Ses membres partagent beaucoup plus
qu’une simple langue commune, car c’est
aussi au travers des valeurs humanistes
véhiculées par la langue française que ses
différents membres se retrouvent, et mènent des actions de coopération multilatérales pour donner corps à une solidarité
active au bénéfice des populations de ses
états. L’OIF agit dans le respect de la diversité culturelle et linguistique, au service
de la promotion de la langue française,
de la paix et du développement durable.
QUELQUES REPERES:
-On compte plus de 220 millions de
locuteurs français dans le monde, dont 72
occasionnels ou potentiels.
-L’Afrique est le continent qui compte le
plus de francophones, au nombre de 96.2
millions.
-Le français est langue officielle dans 32
Etats membres de l’OIF.
T
he International Organisation of la Francophonie
represents one of the biggest linguistic zones in the world. Its
members share more than just a common language. They also share the humanist values promoted by the French
language. The French language and its
humanist values represent the two cornerstones on which the International Organisation of la Francophonie is based.
The International Organisation of la
Francophonie was created in 1970. Its
mission is to embody the active solidarity between its 70 member states, respecting cultural and linguistic diversity, and promoting the french language,
peace and sustainable development
BENCHMARKS:
-220 million French speakers worldwide,
including 72 million partial French speakers.
-96.2 million French-speakers in Africa
Africa is the continent with the largest number of French speakers.
-French is an official language in 32 OIF
member states.

FRANCOPHONIE WEEK 2012
Mondial Cabaret
G
lobal Cabaret is a
two-actor show which
draws on the tradition
of popular cabaret music,
singing,
dancing,
magic
tricks, and burlesque and
masked comedy to present
a take on contemporary
life. A stage reduced to its
most simple form. On one
6
side, an unsmiling master
of ceremonies. On the other
side, a multitalented music
hall artist. In one corner, an
old gramophone ; facing it,
an electric guitar. Antique
lamps. A laptop. Tradition
and innovation alongside each
other. The hour will twist and
turn in an unpredictable way,
according to the whims of
the two characters. Often
funny, sometimes moving,
their interaction will be
defined by jealousy, jokes,
fights and fellowship. Of
course, like in any cabaret
show, there will be music,
comedy, and magic. But
here, nothing will
happen as expected. Songs
will be interrupted, sketches
will deviate, and the magic
will appear uninvited. This
performance is empowered
by beautiful voices, and
comedians
who
coo,
make sketches, pastiches
, tapdances and will blow
your mind!

’est une histoire de cœur. Celui d’Edmond n’est
plus très solide. Mais il bat au rythme d’une
indépendance farouche, celle qui lui fait refuser
l’idée même d’entrer en maison de retraite, celle
qui le pousse à refuser les soins de Rose, qu’on lui
envoie comme infirmière à domicile. Papy fait de
la résistance? La jeune femme lui tient tête. Elle
sait le tumulte qui saisit un cœur quand il faut
accepter l’inacceptable. Le sien n’est pas encore
remis. Un jour, une mauvaise chute oblige Edmond

iancées de l’Amérique est un film de personnages
qui se rencontrent l’espace de quelques jours.
Deux familles, l’une vit en Roumanie, l’autre
en Amérique, sont unies par l’amitié fictive
qu’entretiennent deux femmes. Maria, devenue
entrepreneuse en cosmétique aux États-Unis et
suspectée déserteuse par la Securitate (la police
secrète de la Roumanie communiste), retrouve
Rodica, maintenant mariée avec Radu, l’ex-fiancé
de Maria.
Les personnages sont riches, complets, intéressants,

les acteurs dans un décor champêtre. Un véritable
bijou du cinéma roumain.

hommes s’exposent à l’environnement calm et
séduisant de la région viticole de la Moravie de sud.
T
his is a story of the heart. Edmond’s is no
longer strong. But it still beats with an
independence which fights against the very
idea of entering a retirement home, while
at the same time refusing help from Rose,
his home carer. Nonetheless she stands up
to him. She knows the tumult that a heart
undergoes when it is forced to accept the
unacceptable. Hers hasn’t yet healed. One
day however, a bad fall forces Edmond to
accept Rose’s support.

van and Elie are two loners who wander
aimlessly through their lives. Yvan is a
short-tempered 40-year-old vintage car dealer
while Elie is a young burglar and ex-junkie.
One day Yvan catches Elie trying to rob him.
Instead of beating him up, he becomes strangely
attached to him and agrees to drive him home
to his parents in his old Chevrolet. Yvan and
Elie are both nostalgic about lost relationships,
which is what leads them to undertake a bizarre
journey through a region that is as spectacular
as it is crazy. Both are trying to find the pieces
of a puzzle that they want to put back together,
but it might be too late.

champion de natation est maitre nageur de la piscine
d’un hôtel de luxe à N’Djamena. Lors du rachat de
l’hôtel par des repreneurs chinois, il doit laisser la
place à son fils Abdel. Il vit très mal cette situation
qu’il considère comme une déchéance sociale.

le monde. L’espoir revient. Le lendemain matin c’est

he film stars Papa Wemba, one of the

together such Zairian archetypes as the charming
trickster, the impotent husband, the neglected
wife, the ingenue, and the diviner in a rags
to riches story of a poor rural musician who
finally gets his big break on television. This lively
farce illustrates Zairians’ faith in Systeme-D or
debrouillardise -- the art of husting to survive.
In Kinshasa, our hero uses his wit and talent to
win a beautiful wife, trick his greedy boss and
finally sing his theme song, “La Vie Est Belle,”
on national television. The infectious spirit
and affirmation of life in the face of seemingly
overwhelming obstacles capture one of the most
delightful aspects of contemporary African life.
