  • Austin Studios Screening Room 1901 E 51st St Austin, TX 78723 (map)

On the third Sunday of each month join Alliance Française at Austin Studios to discover both classic and contemporary French film.  AFA Ciné-Club is open to everyone, both AFA members and non-members.  Attendees are welcome to bring refreshments.  Snacks & cold drinks will be available on a donation basis. Films presented in French with English subtitles.

This month AFA Ciné-club will show the comedy LA LOI DE LA JUNGLE by Antonin Peretjatko.  In this absurdist satire, France's Ministry of Standards dispatches a middle-aged intern, Châtaigne, to French Guiana, to oversee the development of Guyaneige, the first indoor ski track in Amazonia. There, he meets a beautiful intern at the National Forestry Office named Tarzan and what ensues is a surreal journey through the Amazon jungle, with absurdist bureaucratic disasters, an aphrodisiac mishap, and a cannibal encounter. Antonin Peretjatko brings us a new unrestrained, intelligent and corrosive comedy being distributed by Haut et Court. 
Seating is limited. Purchase tickets HERE and join us!  99 minutes.
