This Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7:30, Murray State's Cinema International features the 2002 French/Chinese film "Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress."  This acclaimed coming-of-age film is based on the director's semi-autobiographical novel of the same name.  Set during China's cultural revolution, two boys are sent to the country for Maoist re-education.  They discover a cache of forbidden French books and awaken the imagination of a young seamstress.  Todd Hatton speaks with Cinema International director Dr. Therese St. Paul about "Balzac and the Little Seamstress."
