The famous film festival organized by the cultural services of the French Embassy in the United States returns to New York this summer in a double format and with a theme: “Music and Cinema.”
Eight films will be screened from July 9 through July 30 in the city’s parks, or in virtual format at home. Among the highlights, La Boum (Sophie Marceau’s first film) will be screened on the lawn of Central Park on July 9. On July 16, Washington Square Park will host Interstella 5555, a 2003 animated film where Daft Punk’s music meets the drawings of Japanese artist Leiji Matsumuto. Satin Rouge will be shown on July 23 in Seward Park. It tells the story of a widow who one night discovers the world of cabaret, and the bewitching belly dance.
