VINCENT N'A PAS D'ECAILLES

Followed by a discussion with genre film programmer Michael Thielvoldt.

Directed by Thomas Salvador, 2015, France – 78 min – Fantasy - In French with English subtitles
Starring Thomas Salvador, Vimala Pons, Youssef Hajdi
In partnership with Other Worlds Austin Scifi Film Festival

Vincent is a quiet, unassuming man gifted with an extraordinary power: his strength and reflexes increase tenfold when in contact with water. To fully exploit this ability, he moves into an area rich in lakes and rivers, and sufficiently isolated to preserve its tranquility. During one of his water escapades, he is surprised by a woman named Lucie…

Ciné-Club is partnering with Other Worlds Austin Scifi Film Festival to present the self-proclaimed “first French superhero movie”, VINCENT N’A PAS D’ECAILLES. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Michael Thielvoldt, film programmer at Other Worlds Austin and Adjunct Professor at ACC's Radio-TV-Film Department.

Other Worlds Austin, one of the premier SciFi Film Festivals in the US, brings filmmakers and writers, fans, and films together under a shared love of science fiction and horror and the communities these passions breed. Join Other Worlds Austin from December 7-10 for their fourth annual Film Festival, including the horror-focused programming branch: Under Worlds Austin.

Next screening: January 21st, stay tuned!
