6th of June: Barbara, 2017
“An actress is going to play Barbara, and filming is about to begin. She’s working on her character, the voice, the songs, the scores, the gestures, the knitting, the scenes to learn, it’s all going well, it’s growing, it’s even invading her. The director, too, works through his encounters, archives and music, allowing himself to be submerged and invaded like her, by her.”
13th of June: Burning Casa Blanca, 2020
Fallen rock star Larsen Snake returns to his native Casablanca, where he has an explosive encounter with Rajae, a street girl with a golden voice. They scour the city’s nights and fall madly in love. However, their passion is soon overtaken by their past, and the wild couple take to the desert to escape their demons.
20th of June : Rock N Roll, 2016
“Guillaume Canet, 43, has everything he needs to be happy. On a film set, a pretty 20-year-old actress stops him in his tracks, telling him that he’s not very ‘Rock’, that he’s never really been, and to finish him off, that he’s fallen down the list of actors we’d like to fuck. Guillaume understands the urgency to change everything, and he’s going to go far, very far, under the stunned and powerless gaze of those around him.”
27th of June: Les parapluies de Cherbourg, 1964
“Guy Foucher, a 20-year-old French auto mechanic, has fallen in love with 17-year-old Geneviève Emery, an employee in her widowed mother’s chic but financially embattled umbrella shop. On the evening before Guy is to leave for a two-year tour of combat in Algeria, he and Geneviève make love. She becomes pregnant and must choose between waiting for Guy’s return or accepting an offer of marriage from a wealthy diamond merchant.”
