FESTIVAL LINE-UP 2008
What could be better than lounging lazily in a park on a lovely summer evening?
In May and June, the first edition of Films on the Green will present five movies from a collection called "Living Together" which revolves around solidarity, and the powerful links that are formed between communities, friends and neighbors. Profound and moving, each one depicts a different facet of France’s multiethnic, multicultural society—from its animated banlieues to its typical countryside towns.
In July, “Dancing Together” will feature three critically acclaimed and award-winning films showcasing dance and music, from tango to hip hop.
