French Social Cinema at Socially Relevant Film Festival

Image : "A Thousand Pieces" directed by Véronique Mériadec

Socially Relevant Film Festival returns in March 2019 bringing to the forefront more international and local films, industry workshops and panels dedicated to social issues. Hosted by Cinema Village and neighboring venues, the 6th edition of the Festival will present two French films that tell human interest stories and raise awareness.

A thousand Pieces directed by Véronique Mériadec features the explosive encounter of two damaged and fragile protagonists destiny has forced together, Nicole Parmetier a grieving mother and her son’s murderer, twenty-five years after the assassination.

Karma Coma tells the story of François, a young student, who is accosted in the street by a stranger saying he needs medicine. François decides to give him a twenty-euro bill, far from suspecting the consequences of his gesture.
