"If your faith in humanity needs a little boost..." Austin Chronicle on New French Cinema Week

For the past two years, New French Cinema Week has taken over the AFS home theater for some of the best contemporary French-language cinema programming you will find anywhere, in collaboration with Premiers Plans, one of AFS' sister organizations in Angers, France (appropriately enough, Austin's sister city). This year, the AFS Cinema is under renovation and the Contemporary Austin and Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum have stepped in to help us bring these programs to you.

The Austin Chronicle's Josh Kupecki has a full writeup of the series here with excellent descriptions of each film.

Remaining screenings are as follows:

RAGING ROSE with director Julia Kowalski in attendance
@The Contemporary Austin at the Jones Center, Thursday (4/20/17), 8:30pm.

UNCOMPLETED SONG with director/actor/French hip-hop superstar Orelsan in attendance
