CINÉMA & MUSIQUE | June
In June, to jazz your daily life up, we chose to give the Ciné-Club a musical twist! And as we don’t want to sound like a broken record, we propose you a large and exciting selection of movies!
Be seduced by Brooklyn, a young female rapper trying to make her way through life. Then, follow the true story of Marguerite, an opera singer with a heart of goal but a terrible voice, and go back in time to discover the Bolshoi universe with Le Concert. To finish with, be fascinated by the central role music takes in the documentary Swagger.
We hope this programme is music to your ears!

WOMEN’S VOICE IN A MEN’S WORLD | July
This year, three female directors were in competition for La Palme d’Or of the 70th Cannes Festival: Lynne Ramsay (You Were Never Really Here), Naomi Kawase (Radiance) and Sofia Coppola (The Beguiled). They represent 17% of the selected filmmakers in this category.
Because quantity doesn’t mean quality, we choose to show the genius and the diversity of Women’s Cinema for the Ciné-club of July, and to honour those women who fight in a men’s world to make their films for real and to invent a new way of making images, telling stories and directing movies.
Katell Quillévéré made a candid and strong fictional drama, Suzanne, about a truck-driver’s daughter in France who gets into trouble. This stunningly confident movie spans an entire generation in its heroine’s story. Céline Sciamma gives us a powerful matter-of-fact drama about a young girl who wants to be a boy in Tomboy. Let’s continue this cycle with a comedy: Les Gazelles by Mona Achache, which was inspired by a one-woman show, brought to the stage by Camille Chamoux, who is also the lead role of the movie. Then, discover Corniche Kennedy by Dominique Cabrera, adapted from Maylis de Keangal’s sensual and strong novel.
I wanted to make a movie in a crazy energy, as free as possible. I thought that story would be perfect, because it’s about childhood, the rush of emotions, the energy.
Céline Sciamma, French filmmaker, about Tomboy
