Lost in Frenchlation is thrilled to be working together with La Mairie du
11ème for the second year in a row to bring you free outdoor screenings of French films with English subtitles as a part of the highly anticipated 10th annual La Chaise et l’Écran cinema festival! Join us for two short films followed by the classic feature length film « Le Dernier Métro » (1980) by François Truffaut (which won 10 César awards!) on August 18th.

The short films to be screened with English subtitles are:
1. « Une Dernière Course » by Sérgio do Vale (20 min, 2016)
2. « Insolation » by Léa Fabreguettes (6 min, 2015)

“François Truffaut’s 19th century feature is his richest, most satisfying
film in years, adroit dramatic entertainment, gracefully romantic and
uplifting. But it is also a fascinating chronicle of Paris life under the
German Occupation – its daily terror, material deprivation, opportunism,
cowardice, denunciation, as well as its quiet heroism and unexpected
moments of laughter.”
– Variety

“In occupied Paris, an actress married to a Jewish theater owner must keep
him hidden from the Nazis while doing both of their jobs.”
– Official Synopsis

The event will take place in the Jardin de la Folie Titon: an amazing
outdoor location under the stars. Please bring your own seating, whether
it’s a picnic rug or chair.

Lost in Frenchlation is truly excited to play a role in bringing you this
rare opportunity to experience yet another aspect of France’s rich cinema culture. We hope to see you there!
