AVA, the brilliant film debut by writer-director Léa Mysius, screens this week at the French Institute as part of their program Burning Bright—New French Filmmakers.
Thirteen-year-old Ava (Noée Abita) is losing her eyesight. Throwing caution to the wind, she hits the road with a beautiful black dog and its young owner Juan (Juan Cano).
Ava’s mother is played by Laure Calamy. A reception will follow both screenings.
AVA, Tuesday, June 26, at 4 pm and 7:30 pm.
FLORENCE GOULD HALL, 55 East 59th Street, New York City.
