A Paris Education
Director Jean Paul Civeyrac evokes Nouvelle Vague cinema in the bittersweet story of aspiring filmmaker Etienne, who moves to Paris to study film at the Sorbonne. Settling into a dingy flat with a rotating cast of characters, he immerses himself into the city's bohemian world of images and ideas. Over the course of a year, he struggles to navigate personal and creative jealousies in pursuit of his own unique voice.
Showcasing more than 17 films from five countries and four continents, our 7th French Cinema Now features legendary directors like Agnès Jaoui, Laurent Tirard, and Xavier Giannoli working alongside the new wave of filmmakers such as Meryem Benm'Barek, Victor Saint Macary, Ian Lagarde, and Carine Tardieu.
