September 4, 2014 | 8:00 p.m. 
All is Forgiven (Tout est pardonné
Directed by Mia Hansen-Love (2007) 

Victor lives in Vienna with Annette, and their daughter Pamela. Preferring a leisurely life, Victor avoids getting any work done by spending his days - and sometimes his nights - out of the house. Very much attached to him, Annette trusts that he will get his act together once they move back to Paris. But in France, Victor simply does not give up his bad habits.

Following a violent argument, he moves in with a junkie with whom he has fallen in love. Annette leaves Victor, taking Pamela with her. Eleven years later, Pamela is seventeen and lives in Paris with her mother. One day she learns that her father lives nearby, and decides to see him again.

 

September 5, 2014 | 8:00 p.m. 
Tomboy
Directed by Céline Sciamma (2011)

 

This film tells the story of 10-year-old Laure, who moves to the suburbs and decides to pass as a boy amongst the group of neighborhood kids. Disguising herself as “Mikael”, she catches the attention of their leader, Lisa, who becomes smitten with her.

At home she is Laure; but with her new pals and girlfriend, she is Mikael. Finding resourceful ways to hide her true self, Laure takes advantage of her new identity.

Both outdoor screenings are free and open to the public. For ticket reservations, please click here. The films will be shown in French with English subtitles
