Le Grande Voyage. A few weeks before his college entrance exams, Reda, a young man who lives in the south of France, finds himself obligated to drive his father to Mecca. The wide cultural and generational gap between the two is worsened by their lack of communication. Reda finds it hard to accommodate his father, who demands respect for himself and his pilgrimage. From France, through Italy, Serbia, Turkey, Syria, and Jordan to Saudi Arabia, the two embark on a road trip that will change their lives.
This event is free and open to the campus and community.
