FRENCH FILMS PART OF THE IFI ‘BEFORE THE REVOLUTION’ SEASON
The IFI is delighted to present this radical interrogation of films from and about the 1960s that has been specially curated by critic, poet and director of the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), Enrique Juncosa.
This personal selection captures film’s contribution and response to the seismic shift in social behaviours, and political thought and action, that took place in the 1960s.
The selection of films includes :
THE MOTHER AND THE WHORE - La Maman et la putain - Sat 25 Sept at 14.30
Jean Eustache’s 1973 epic about the lives and loves of a trio of Parisian outsiders.
REGULAR LOVERS - Les Amants réguliers - Sun 26 Sept at 13.00
Tousle-haired Louis Garrel returns to the Left Bank streets of Paris ’68 in this leisurely rumination on revolution and its aftermath directed by his father, Philippe Garrel.
WEEK-END - Mon 27 Sept at 18.30
In telling the story of a bourgeois couple whose weekend break leads inexorably to chaos and cannibalism, Jean-Luc Godard fashioned his most apocalyptic vision of social and cultural breakdown.
‘BEFORE THE REVOLUTION’
