France, 2017, 83 min. In French with English Subtitles.

Playing as part of New French Cinema Week 2017. With director Lidia Terki in attendance.
A 70-year old Algerian woman crosses the Mediterranean for the first time in search of her migrant husband, who had traveled to France 40 years prior to find work that would support his growing family. After many months of receiving money but no news, Rekia has decided it’s time to bring Nour back to his homeland. Director Lidia Terki uses a script and images that evoke classic poetic realism, eschewing a traditional narrative for a sensual, cinematic depiction of the emotional experience of immigrant life.

L'AGE DES SIRÈNES (Plays before PARIS LA BLANCHE)
Héloïse Pelloquet, France, 2016, Digital, 27 min., in French with English subtitles

Mattis is almost 15 and works on a fishing boat during the summer. He discovers a whole new world there. Soon it will be time for him and his friends to leave their childhood island, and go to high school on the continent.
