Lost in Frenchlation is proud to present our first-ever, FREE outdoor film series where the city of Paris will be our cinema! We will be screening a wide range of French films including “Fidelio: l’Odyssée d’Alice”, “La Nouvelle Eve”, “La Classe Americaine”, and a series of contemporary short films as you enjoy the fresh summer air.
8:30PM, July 12th @ Mairie du 11ème – ‘Fidelio: l’Odyssée d’Alice’ [1h37min]
As a part of the Mairie du 11eme “La Chaise et L’Ecran” Film Festival, this screening will take place on the courtyard of the town hall of Mairie Onze. We will have a classical concert before the screening with violinist François Pineau-Benois and cellist Dimitri Maslennikov. These two artists will perform a classical program of Glière, Janacek, and Ravel. The film will feature English subtitles for Fidelio, the Odyssey of Alice, directed by Lucie Borleteau with Ariane Labed as the titular character.
Thirty-year-old Alice is a sailor. She leaves Félix, her man, on dry land, and embarks as a mechanic on an old cargo ship, Fidelio. Once on board, she discovers that she is replacing a man who has just died and that Gaël, the first great love of her life, is the ship’s captain.

For our great feature in the beautiful courtyard of Mob Hotel, we will screen the rarely shown, ‘La Classe Américaine’ directed by Michel Hazanavicius and Dominique Mezerette.
