Film retrospective 2013-2014 : My Favorite French Film

Chicago’s great citizens share their favorite French film with you! Prepare to be surprised by some of our matches… with contemporary to rare, classic films from France and la francophonie.
In French with English subtitles.

A fact-based account of ordinary citizens who found themselves arrested and imprisoned without charge for weeks during the October Crisis in 1970 Quebec, Les Ordres still packs a punch and stuns audiences 40 years later… Combining fiction and documentary, black and white and colour, interviews and re-enactments, Brault, who won the best director award at Cannes for his work on the film, draws a complex picture of this most traumatic event in Québec history.
