CinéSalon • March & April 2016
EDM Anthems: French Touch on Film Tuesdays at 4 & 7:30pm
Since the mid-1990s, a group
of French DJs and producers have revolutionized dance music with their distinct mix of disco samples and robotic vocals. Known as the French Touch, musicians associated with this movement—including Daft Punk, Kavinsky, and Air—have also put their mark on contemporary cinema.
In this series of movies scored by and about DJs, see how the French Touch has extended beyond dance floors to transform the feel of Parisian banlieues (Girlhood), suburban Michigan (The Virgin Suicides), and cinema itself.
Films in French with English subtitles unless otherwise noted.
