Description

Tuesday Movie Night !!!

Every Tuesday we organize a screening of a Francophone movie with English subtitles.


“Barbara” by Mathieu Amalric (2017)

With: Jeanne Balibar, Mathieu Amalric, Vincent Peirani

Genre: Drama, Biopic, Musical


An actress is going to play Barbara, the famous French singer, and the shooting is about to start. She works on her character, the voice, the songs, the music sheets, the moves, the knitting, the scenes to learn, it grows, it becomes part of her. The director is working too: he meets people, goes through the archives, the music, and lets himself get submerged by her.

Une actrice va jouer Barbara, le tournage va commencer bientôt. Elle travaille son personnage, la voix, les chansons, les partitions, les gestes, le tricot, les scènes à apprendre, ça va, ça avance, ça grandit, ça l'envahit même. Le réalisateur aussi travaille, par ses rencontres, par les archives, la musique, il se laisse submerger, envahir comme elle, par elle.



The theater doors open 25 minutes before the movie starts. You are welcome to wait in the library if you arrive before then.

The movie is free but we appreciate a donation of $5 for which we will thank you with a glass of French wine before the movie starts.

See you there!
