French Connections / Matinée du Film: La Nouvelle Vague

French Connections / Matinée du Film: La Nouvelle Vague
Présenté en partenariat avec l'Alliance Française de Calgary

Pour notre première soirée dans la série de prestations intitulée French Connections, nous présentons Les 400 coups, le chef-d'oeuvre de François Truffaut, qui, à lui seul, a servi à définir la nouvelle vague du cinéma à l'époque. Notre directeur et PDG, M. Pierre Arpin, introduira le film en contextualisant le style révolutionnaire de la nouvelle vague française.
Cette présentation aura lieu dans notre salle de projection (au sous-sol) où nos invités pourront se prélasser sur notre mobilier classique du 20e siècle - tout en dégustant gratuitement un délicieux maïs soufflé. La courte présentation aura lieu en français, alors que le film sera présenté avec sous-titres en anglais.

_________________

For our first French Connections film screening we will be showing François Truffaut’s The 400 Blows, a defining film of French nouvelle vague or “New Wave” cinema. Our Director and CEO Pierre Arpin will provide an introduction to the film, discussing the revolutionary style of “New Wave” cinema and how the film relates to our current exhibition extratextual.
This matinée will be held in Contemporary Calgary’s screening room where you can relax on chic mid-century modern leather couches while enjoying complimentary popcorn. The introductory talk will be held in French and the film will be screened with english subtitles.
