Film screening of C’est la vie! (Le Sens de la Fête) (French with English subtitles)

For 36 years, the Washington, DC International Film Festival has brought us the best of world cinema, featuring many new and exciting films from around the globe. Come discover or re-discover the French hits shown at the festival through this delightful series curated by the Filmfest DC staff.

And if anything can go wrong, everything will go wrong…
