The Alliance Française de La Nouvelle-Orléans will be hosting a screening Des Etoiles (Under the Starry Sky) followed by a Q &A on Friday, December 10 at 6:30pm with director/filmmaker Dyana Gaye, currently in residence with Villa Albertine in New Orleans.

Des Etoiles (2013) is the first feature film from Dyana Gaye, a pleasant fable following the crisscrossing stories of three characters between Turin, New York, and Dakar. Sophie (Marème Demba Ly), Abdoulaye (Souleymane Seye Ndiaye), and Thierno (Ralph Amoussou) never meet, but their destinies are connected. In a metaphorical chassécroisé, everyone is somewhere else, but Dakar is, for all of them, a common anchor point.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

This event is presented in partnership with the Villa Albertine and the Consulate General of France in New Orleans.
