Austin Studios Screening Room
On the third Sunday of each month join Alliance Française at Austin Studios to discover both classic and contemporary French film. AFA Ciné-Club is open to everyone, both AFA members and non-members. Snacks & drinks may be purchased from AFS Concessions. Films are presented in French with English subtitles. This month AF Ciné-Club presents the coming-of-age film SWAGGER by Olivier Babinet. SWAGGER unfolds in the housing projects in the suburbs of Paris and joins eleven adolescents as they move through their daily routines and share their hopes and dreams with the camera. In a twist, the film combines live documentary footage with staged sequences depicting incidents from the teenagers’ lives and imaginations. Director Olivier Babinet spent over two years working among these young people. This film combines Babinet’s own sensibility honed from a career in commercials and music videos with that of his teenage collaborators, producing a fresh look at a segment of French society too often reduced to one-dimensional images of crime and poverty.
Online tickets are $6 and tickets purchased at-the-door are $8. For more information, visit the event page.
