Le Ciné de l'Alliance - DECEMBER Session #1

L’Alliance fait son cinéma !

Join us every other Wednesday  to watch a French-Speaking movie with us ! You will then have the occasion to discuss the movie and the subjects related with the volunteers.


WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 8 : Roubaix, une lumière d’Arnaud Desplechin
Avec Roschdy Zem, Léa Seydoux et Sara Forestier. 

WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 22 : Au nom de la terre, d’Edouard Bergeon
Avec Guillaume canet. 

December's two movies will give us Un autre Regard sur la France (Another View of France)... 

Paris est un lieu commun du cinéma français et international, autant que le sont la côte d’Azur, ses villas et ses stations balnéaires luxueuses. Pourtant, il existe aussi une France qui fait moins rêver, celle des régions agricoles ou industrielles, qui connaissent des difficultés sociales réelles. Au nom de la Terre et Roubaix, une lumière en saisissent chacun à leur manière les troubles et les complexités. Le premier retrace la saga familiale tourmentée d’agriculteurs de Mayenne, et le second constitue une enquête policière à la veille de Noël dans une des villes les plus pauvres de France.

Paris is a commonplace of French and international cinema, as much as the French Riviera, its villas and luxurious beach resorts are. However, there is also a France that is less dreamy, that of agricultural and industrial areas, which are experiencing real social difficulties. Au nom de la Terre and Roubaix, une lumière each capture in their own way the troubles and complexities. The first traces the tormented family saga of farmers in Mayenne and the second is a police investigation on Christmas Eve in one of the poorest cities in France.
