The French Cinémathèque at the Avalon Theatre Presents: In the Shadow of Women

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 the Shadow of Women (L'Ombre des Femmes) by Philippe Garrel.

Pierre is a documentary filmmaker who works side by side with his wife, Manon. Theirs satisfying life, if not financially lucrative, will be turned upside down when Pierre would meet Elisabeth, an intern at the film archive where he is doing some research for his latest documentary.

Evoking the self-absorption of the male ego and women who suffer from its recriminations, this drama explores with irony how couple’s true feelings are sometimes at odds with the established mores regarding fidelity and marriage. 

The monthly French Cinémathèque series at the Avalon Theatre takes places every third Wednesday of the month.

The French Cinémathèque series by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States is made possible through a generous grant from TV5Monde.
