Gaël Morel brings his new film PRENDRE LE LARGE (CATCH THE WIND) to New York for a screening, conversation, and Focus on French Cinema fest closing night party – all at the French Institute/Alliance Française.
In a change of pace from Morel’s usual subject matter – same-sex love and survival among the young beurs of France, often starring Stéphane Rideau – CATCH THE WIND tells the story of Edith (Sandrine Bonnaire), as she follows her multinational employer from Europe to Morocco.
PRENDRE LE LARGE (CATCH THE WIND), Tuesday, May 1, at 7:30.
FLORENCE GOULD HALL, FIAF, 55 East 59th Street, New York City.
