Launch of French Cinémathèque


Other People's Children by Rebecca Zlotowski


Monthly as of January 22, 2024


Please join us on January 22, for the launch of French Cinémathèque, a monthly curated discussion series about French movies.  The inaugural event will feature a discussion on Other People’s Children, the latest film from Rebecca Zlotowski with Virginie Efira, Roschdy Zem, and Chiara Mastroianni.

Rachel loves her life, her students, her friends, her ex, her guitar lessons. When she falls in love with Ali, she grows close to his 4-year-old daughter, Leila. She tucks her in, looks after her, and loves her like a mother… which she isn’t. Not yet. Rachel is 40. The desire for a family of her own is growing stronger, and the clock is ticking. Is it too late?

The discussion will be led by Villa Albertine Los Angeles director Aude Hesbert. Aude has had a distinguished career in the promotion of French cinema, including positions with the Forum des Images, the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, the Paris Cinema International Film Festival, Unifrance, and Le Public Système Cinéma. She has just taken a new position as the Head of Film and TV for the Villa Albertine in Los Angeles.

Participants are encouraged to watch the films via streaming before attending the discussion.

Get ready to enjoy a discussion on a new French film every month! Presented by the Federation of Alliances Françaises USA in collaboration with Telescope Film.
