PEPPERMINT SODA (Diabolo menthe)
Directed by Diane Kurys, 1977, PG, 1h41, France (Courtesy of Cohen Media Group)
With Anouk Ferjac, Eléonore Klarwein, Odile Michel

Anne (Klarwein) and Frédérique (Michel) are sisters entering their teen years in 1963 Paris. Their life, like the world around them, is in full swing. Their personal struggles include the difficulties of divorced parents, getting their first period, discovering boys, and struggling with the confines of their strict school all while figuring out where they fit in the society around them. All the fiasco they undergo presents an opportunity for both a political and romantic awakening.

FILMS ON THE GREEN FESTIVAL

The 2019 Films on the Green lineup focuses on female directors in French and Francophone cinema through a selection of 13 movies. This 12th edition pays tribute to “Women Behind the Camera” in honor of Agnès Varda, feminist filmmaker and pioneer of the French New Wave, who passed away earlier this year.
