CinéSalon • Sept/Oct 2014 Alain Resnais: Time, Memory & Imagination
Tuesday, Sept 30, Oct 7, 14, 21 and 28 Free for FIAF Members!
Each week in October, see a different side of acclaimed art house director, Alain Resnais, in a homage highlighting gems from his oeuvre rarely screened on this side of the Atlantic. Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine after each screening.
Resnais has become
synonymous with French
filmmaking and the New Wave. However, he stood apart from contemporaries like Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffant in his dedication to formalism, social and political issues.
Before his death in March 2014,
Resnais made more than 20 films
all featuring luscious imagery,
vibrant writing, and enigmatic
plots. Often drawing from
literature, Resnais focused repeatedly
on themes of time and memory to offer
a singular artistic vision.
In the spirit of the French ciné-clubs and literary salons, CinéSalon pairs
an engaging French film with a social post-screening wine reception.
Every 7:30pm screening will be
introduced by a high-profile
personality in the arts.
Films in French with English subtitles.
