Event Details

Film retrospective 2013-2014 My Favorite French Film

Chicago’s great citizens share their favorite French film with you! Prepare to be surprised by some of our matches… with contemporary to rare, classic films from France and la francophonie.

 

L’Age d’Or / Golden Age (1930, 63 min.) by Luis Bunuel with French Jazzman Alexandre Pierrepont & The Bridge ensemble

In French with English subtitles.

A popular success when it was released in 1930, this comedy with a screenplay signed Salvador Dali features a man and a woman passionately in love with one another, but constantly thwarted by the values and sexual mores of Family, Church and bourgeois Society.

 

French anthropologist Alexandre Pierrepont curates “The Bridge”, a multi-year project building bridges between Chicago and France through jazz.

Luis Buñuel Portolés was a Spanish filmmaker. He is considered as the father of cinematic Surrealism and one of the most original directors in the history of the film medium.

When Luis Buñuel died in 1983, his obituary in the New York Times called him "an iconoclast, moralist, and revolutionary who was a leader of avant-garde surrealism in his youth and a dominant international movie director half a century later".
