Young French Cinema: "Something Is Happening" Presented by Film Director Anne Alix

French film director Anne Alix will be on the campus of Macalester College, St Paul (MN) to present her 2018 film Something is Happening ( Il se passe quelque chose) and to hold a masterclass as part of  our Young French Cinema Program.

A second screening of the film is organized by the MSP Film Society, Minneapolis, on October 22.

Having lost her husband and job, Irma jumps into an Avignon river, only to be rescued and befriended by Dolores, a free-spirited Spaniard researching a gay-friendly travel guide in the South of France. Something Is Happening follows the duo as they embark on an ultimately life-changing adventure that reveals Provence beyond the lavender fields, reflecting the evolving population, portrayed by nonprofessional actors.

“The most exquisite natural landscapes are trespassed by huge wind farms and imperious steel transmission towers. These juxtapositions create an atmosphere as fascinating as it is unnerving, transforming the scene before our eyes into a kind of physical and spiritual portrait of place.” —Cineuropa.org

The US tour of Director Anne Alix is organized by UniFrance and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States as part of Young French Cinema program.
