Description

The Fall's French Cinema

Discover the new wave of francophone directors this fall with the Alliance Française de Seattle's cultural program. This Fall's French cinema program is the "neo nouvelle-vague", in reference to the generation of filmmakers that made the French New Wave in the 50s and 60s (Godard, Truffaut, Rohmer, etc.), breaking traditional narrative codes and innovating with plots, genres, and editing techniques.


+++ Thursday, Nov 1, 6:30-8:30pm

Les amours imaginaires (Heartbeats), 2010, by Xavier Dolan, with Xavier Dolan, Monia Chokri, and Niels Schneider. 1h 41 min. Synopsis: Francis (Xavier Dolan) and Mary (Monia Chokri) are good friends. One night, they meet Nick (Niels Schneider), a young man from the country who has just settled in Montreal. From encounter to encounter, from moment to moment, troubled by innumerable signs—some real, some imagined—Francis and Mary fall deeper and deeper into a fantastical obsession. Soon, they find themselves on the precipice of a love duel that threatens the friendship they once thought indestructible. In French, with English subtitles, followed by Q&A.
