Pierrot Le Fou
Pierrot le Fou (1965) is arguably the masterpiece of Jean-Luc Godard’s glorious first period, that extraordinary burst of creativity that extends from his landmark debut Breathless to the political films of the late sixties.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21 at 12:30pm
Francofonia
Francofonia is the great Russian filmmaker Alexander Sokurov’s heroically ambitious meditation on European culture and history as seen through the story of the Louvre museum in Paris, with a particular focus on its fortunes during World War II.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22 at 6:00pm
Valley of Love
Thirty-five years after playing a bourgeois woman and her thug lover in Maurice Pialat’s classic Loulou, Isabelle Huppert and Gérard Depardieu are finally reunited in Guillaume Nicloux’s deeply original Valley of Love.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23 at 12:30pm
Realite
Combine David Lynch’s headscratching wildness and Charlie Kaufman’s hilarious worst-case scenarios, throw in a pinch of Luis Buñuel’s wicked irreverence and a streak of cruel French humor, and you’ll be a little closer to understanding how far outside convention this delightfully fearless, mind-bending comedy dwells.

My Golden Days

Mathieu Amalric reprises the role of Paul Dédalus from Arnaud Desplechin’s My Sex Life…Or How I Got into an Argument in My Golden Days, the character’s origin story. Paul, now an anthropologist, prepares to leave Tajikistan and reflects on his life. He has a series of flashbacks that unfold in three episodes.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24 at 6:00pm
Saint Laurent

With this lushly executed, unorthodox biopic of superstar couturier Yves Saint Laurent, French director Bertrand Bonello has established himself as one of the leading auteurs of our time.

All films are in French with English subtitles. Screenings are free and open to the public.
