The Film Society of Lincoln Center's annual Rendez-Vous with French Cinema program returns with another edition that exemplifies the variety and vitality of contemporary French filmmaking. The films on display, by emerging talents and established masters, raise ideas both topical and eternal, and many take audiences to entirely unexpected places. While highlights from past editions include Bertrand Bonello's Nocturama, François Ozon's Frantz, Robin Campillo's Eastern Boys, and Justine Triet's Victoria, this year's edition features the New York premieres of both Léa Mysius' Ava and Maryam Goormaghtigh's Before Summer Ends, two films recently spotlighted in Filmatique's My French Film Festival series. The 23rd edition of Rendez-Vous will demonstrate that the landscape of French cinema is as fertile, inspiring, and distinct as ever.
Co-presented with UniFrance Films; organized by Florence Almozini and Dennis Lim. Through March 18th at Lincoln Center.
