Join us for bubbles & a chat before a night at the French Film Festival Aotearoa
SOLD OUT (as of 3 June 2022)

This year, we are celebrating la Fête de la Musique in a different way! We are organising a night at the French Film Festival to watch the musically driven film La Traviata, My Brothers and I

Nour, a 14-year-old boy, is enjoying the beginning of the summer holidays in the South of France. He is the youngest of four brothers. They live together in a council estate, taking turns caring for their mother who is in a coma. She used to love Italian Opera, so Nour plays it for her, and develops a passion for that music. Between community work and rising tensions at home, Nour dreams of escaping to a faraway place. When he crosses paths with Sarah, an Opera singer teaching summer classes, he finally finds the opportunity to come out of his shell and explore new horizons.

Watch the trailer below.

We will meet at Alliance Française Wellington to enjoy a glass of bubbles and a chat about the festival and French cinema. Then, we will go to the Embassy Theatre together to watch the film. Feel free to hang around after to discuss the experience!

When: Saturday 18 June at 5:00pm
Where: Alliance Française Wellington for the apéro & Embassy Theatre for the film
How much: $12 per person
