Event Description


Alliance Francaise to hold Pre-Nouvelle vague Weekend

Alliance Francaise de Bangkok is proud to showcase the fantastic movies of the Pre-Nouvelle vague period selected by Pathompong Manakitsomboon, former film programmer for the World Film Festival. The films will be screened throughout the weekend of September 16 – 18, 2011 at Alliance Francaise’s auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. All movies will be in French with English subtitles.

The new wave cinema movement “Nouvelle Vague”, developed after the Second World War, involved legendary film directors such as Francois Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol and Eric Rohmer. They reinvented cinema by deconstructing and redefining narratives, film techniques and acting. Films shown during this 3-day cinema weekend heralded this visionary movement. 

Weekend with 5 movies
The first screening will begin on Friday with “L’Atalante” the only film made by director Jean Vigo who died shortly after its release in theaters. The program line-up on Saturday and Sunday includes “French Cancan” of director Jean Renoir’s fictionalized account of the creation of the notorious Moulin Rouge cabaret in Paris; “Le Diable boiteux” the life of French diplomat Prince de Talleyrand-Périgord directed by Sacha Guitry based on his own play “Talleyrand”; director Alexandre Astruc’s film “Une Vie” based on Guy de Maupassant’s novel by the same name and Roger Leenhardt’s “Les Dernieres Vacances”. 

The screenings will be followed by a discussion with Sonthaya Subyen, founder of the group Filmvirus on Sunday at 18:30 hrs.
