French film star visits Lille campus

Written on 21 November 2013.

French film star Jamel Debbouze visited the Lille campus recently to promote his film, La Marche, which recounts a famous march of solidarity against racism by a group of young people in 1983.

During the 1 500 km march from Marseille to Paris, the organisers convinced thousands of French people to join them in the movement against racism. When they reached Paris, they brought their message to the highest seat of French government, the Elysée Palace, where they met with President François Mitterrand.

During their visit to EDHEC, Jamel Debbouze, La Marche director Nabil Ben Yadir, and Toumi Djaïdja, who was responsible for organizing the original march, met with journalists as well as students and the general public. More than 800 people attended the event, which was held in EDHEC’s beautiful, high-tech amphitheatre.
