They hope to one day have their own cinema that allows the international community to enjoy the best of French film on any given day, but for the time being they are starting small with monthly screenings of a mix of classic and current box office movies. They also host drinks before and/or after screenings with some innovative film-themed cocktails that the viewers can enjoy while they chat about the film or anything else that pops into their heads!
This February 17, Lost in Frenchlation is bringing you a touch of summer from the beautiful Marseille with Dominique Cabrera’s ‘Corniche Kennedy’!
‘This is an exhilarating sun-kissed experience, a poetic account set against the ruggedness of nature, in equal measures beautiful and dangerous’
– Marie-Pierre Richard, Dublin French Film festival
The screening will take place at the amazing Studio 28 in the heart of Montmartre – Paris’ oldest cinema room which is also one of the city’s most iconic. Join them from 8pm for a film-themed cocktail available from the bar (€4.50) before the cinema room doors open at 9:15pm. Tickets available on the door only – please arrive early to avoid disappointment!
‘It’s summer in picturesque Corniche Kennedy, a well-off neighbourhood in Marseille, where a group of disaffected late teens have adopted the sea cliffs as their haunt. With a clear blue sky backdrop they somersault and dive their way through the summer. Marco, a slender, matt-skinned figure is a driver for a drug gang, while blond-haired, child-like Mehdi cares for his mother and imprisoned brother. Then, following an initiation rite, Suzanne (the luminous Lola Créton), a middle class girl, comes between them…’ – Synopsis
See you at Studio 28 to enjoy ‘Corniche Kennedy’ with English subtitles and in true Parisian style – at the cinema!
