L’ÉTÉ MEURTRIER AT THE FRENCH INSTITUTE

As part of their tribute to César-winning actresses, FIAF presents a rare screening of Jean Becker’s L’ÉTÉ MEURTRIER—ONE DEADLY SUMMER (1983), starring Isabelle Adjani. “Though L’ÉTÉ MEURTRIER relates history through cinema, it’s equally interested in the history of cinema itself—specifically Italian neorealism and how Becker’s father, Jacques, often intersected politics and gender through a genre template in […]
