Exceptionnally, this screening will take place at 11:30 am at AFS Cinema on 6259 Middle Fiskville Rd, Austin TX.
 

By Mathieu Amalric, 2017, France – 107 min – Drama
With Jeanne Balibar, Mathieu Amalric, Vincent Peirani, Aurore Clément, Grégoire Colin

For nearly four decades Monique Serf, known to the world as Barbara, cut a larger-than-life figure in French popular music. Her melancholy, self-penned songs won admirers across Europe, including young Yves Zand (played by Mathieu Amalric), who goes on to become a successful film director. Two decades after Barbara's death, Yves embarks on making a movie about the late singer, featuring an actress named Brigitte (played by Jeanne Balibar). As the shooting wears on, Brigitte and Yves struggle to capture the essence of an icon they know through hazy memories, through archival footage, and through her music.

The latest directorial outing from acclaimed French actor Mathieu Amalric, BARBARA offers a bold challenge to biopic conventions and a brilliant showcase for actress Jeanne Balibar, whose multifaceted performance earned her the 2018 César Award for Best Actress.

In French with English subtitles

Next screening: June 17, stay tuned!
