Littérature Au Vol. De la Terre à la Lune

JANUARY, 2021

Littérature Au Vol is an exciting project in which students will have the opportunity to discuss, contextualize and interpret collectively a text by a major French author.  


This year, to match the theme of the 2020 edition of Novembre Numerique, “Univers/e”, a group of seven French III.1 students had the opportunity to work on selected passages from De la Terre à la Lune, an 1865 novel by Jules Verne which inspired many subsequent literary, cinematographic and musical works.  


Based on their reading and interpretation, participants adapted the text in the form of a short video using their own digital devices and collected materials. As a group, they were in charge of reading/performing the text, recording the video segments, editing and mixing the video.  


The video they created was presented as part of the 2020, Hong Kong edition of Novembre Numérique; a worldwide festival celebrating digital cultures.
