fREE SCREENING: DANS LA MAISON (MA)

FRIDAY 24 AUGUST, 6:15PM TO 8:00PM   I   ALLIANCE FRANÇAISE, WEST END
A precocious student infiltrates a classmate's family, and submits stories about it for a class. His teacher is shocked at first, but is quickly drawn into, and complicit in, the story, even as it crosses the line into dangerous territory. This film is showing as a prelude to our free public talk with Professor Phil Powrie titled Losing the Plot: the French loser and masculinity on screen on Tuesday 28 August (see listing below). 
Director: François Ozon
Starring: Kristin Scott Thomas, Fabrice Luchini and Ernst Umhauer

LOSING THE PLOT:
THE FRENCH LOSER AND MASCULINITY ON SCREEN

TUESDAY 28 AUGUST, 6:15PM TO 7:30PM   I   ALLIANCE FRANCAISE, WEST END
Phil Powrie is Professor of Cinema Studies at the University of Surrey, UK, and one of the world’s leading authorities on French Cinema. In this free talk, Professor Powrie will discuss ways in which a crisis of masculinity has been addressed in recent French Cinema. Attendees can expect to gain insights not only into questions of what masculinity and the aging body signify today but also how cinema can help us to think through such questions.
