The Alliance Française at 113 N. 1st St. in Minneapolis' North Loop will hold a public event at 11:30 a.m. honoring the victims of the Charlie Hebdo killings, which have rightly been recognized as an attack on freedom of expression worldwide. A moment of silence, as requested by French President François Hollande, will follow at noon. Participants include Christina Selander Bouzouina, Honorary French Consul and the Alliance's Executive Director; Minneapolis City Council President Barb Johnson; Bruno Chaouat, the University of Minnesota's Department Chair of French/Italian; and Jonathan Kealing, Public Radio International and president-elect, Minnesota Society of Professional Journalists. Allons-y!
It's lights, camera, action on Thursday for the Woody Harrelson movie "Wilson," on location at the state prison in Stillwater. But the Department of Corrections' ban on cameras means the film crew won't be allowed inside.
