Set in Paris, the Netflix smash hit Lupin offers a contemporary spin on the legendary capers of gentleman thief Arsène Lupin, who appeared in early twentieth-century stories by French author Maurice Leblanc.  The series follows master criminal Assane Diop (Omar Sy), who was inspired by the Lupin character as a young man, in his quest for vengeance after his Senegalese immigrant father is framed for the theft of a priceless diamond necklace. Diop squares off against the crooked patriarch (Hervé Pierre) of the wealthy and unscrupulous Pellegrini family to expose a criminal conspiracy of thievery, kidnapping, assassins, and corruption. Created by George Kay and François Uzan, Lupin is globally renowned as one of the most-watched non-English shows on Netflix.

The Carsey-Wolf Center is delighted to welcome Jean Beaman (Sociology, UCSB), France Winddance Twine (Sociology, UCSB), and Lisa Parks (Film and Media Studies, UCSB) for a virtual discussion of this groundbreaking series.

This event will not include screening. Lupin may be streamed in advance on Netflix.
