About this event:
Join us for a Happy Hour Apéro at the Broad Theatre at 6pm. Members and general public are encouraged to join in our apéro — a quick get together with drinks after work, French and English speakers alike, then be sure to stay for this wonderful documentary by Oliver Babinet at 7pm. If you didn’t catch it at last year’s French Film Festival, be sure to come out for this one-night only screening. The cinematagraphy warrants a big screen viewing.
Swagger is a beautifully shot, deftly edited, uplifting documentary about life in the projects of the tough Paris suburb of Aulnay-sous-Bois, as seen through the eyes of eleven middle school students, most of whom are first generation French citizens. Speaking directly to the camera as if it were a long-trusted confidante, these extraordinary young people talk about love, being French, life in the projects, and their visions of the future.
Film shown in French with English subtitles.
