Let's talk about cinema!
During this time of quarantine, it's important to socialize and have fun! And it's even better when you can do so by practicing your French and sharing your love of cinema and Francophones cultures.
How does it work ?
- Each week, we have chosen a film for you to view at home; our selections are available via various streaming services.
- Every participant watches the film before the discussion at a time that fits their own schedule.
- On Friday at 5PM, participants join a meeting on Zoom and discuss about the film.
It's a donation-based event (suggested donation: $10).

A film by Danièle Thompson.
With Guillaume Gallienne, Guillaume Canet, Alice Pol
Synopsis: Cézanne et Moi traces the parallel paths of the lives, careers and passionate friendship of post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne and novelist Emile Zola. The two boys grew up in Aix-en-Provence. Emile was fatherless and poor. Paul came from a wealthy family. As young men, dreaming of glory and beautiful women, they left the south to conquer the art scene in Paris. Soon Emile had it all, success, money, and the perfect wife, and embraced the very bourgeoisie he mocked in his books. Meanwhile, Cézanne rejected the Parisian scene to focus only on his work, ignored by his peers and the establishment.
