The monthly French Cinémathèque series at the Avalon Theatre, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, presents the screening of the 2015 film In Her Name by Vincent Garenq.

A gripping and emotional legal drama based on a true story that moved France for three decades. Starring Daniel Auteuil (Jean De Florette) and Sebastian Koch (Homeland).

In 1982, André Bamberski (Daniel Auteuil) learns that his 14 year-old daughter, Kalinka, has died while on vacation with her mother and stepfather (Sebastian Koch) in Germany. Convinced that Kalinka’s death was not an accident, Bamberski begins to investigate. A botched autopsy report raises his suspicions and leads him to accuse Kalinka’s stepfather, Dr Dieter Krombach, as the murderer. Unable to indict Krombach in Germany, Bamberski attempts to take the trial to France and dedicates his life to Kalinka’s justice and Krombach’s imprisonment in this true story of perseverance and obsessive determination.
