THE WELL-DIGGERS DAUGHTER (Fri, Mar 23, 6:30pm and Mon, Mar 26, 7:30pm)
"A polished, finely acted tale of love and class in the south of France" -Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

THE MOON CHILD (Fri, Mar 23, 8:45pm)
"A markedly honest portrait of characters coping with a lifestyle that cuts them off from the everyday world" -Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

THE SCREEN ILLUSION (Sat, Mar 24, 7:45pm and Wed, Mar 28, 7:30pm)
"expertly open[s] up Corneille's world of warring nobles, love triangles and deadly jealousies through a creative modernization" -Jay Weissberg, Variety

SMUGGLERS’ SONGS (Sat, Mar 24, 5:30pm)
"As recent events across the Middle East show, revolutions don't spring out of thin air. The roots of one of history's most dramatic upheavals, the French Revolution of 1789, are traced in Rabur Ameur-Zaïmeche's thought-provoking fourth feature." -Neil Young, Hollywood Reporter

THE LAST SCREENING (Sat, Mar 24, 9:30pm and Tue, Mar 27, 8:30pm)
"A French take on the Italian Giallo" -Noah Lee, Film Threat

PATER (Sun, Mar 25, 5:30pm and Thu, Mar 29, 7:30pm)
"It’s politics as a movable feast, where men of power play at make-believe, a bit like in cinema."
-Joan DuPont, New York Times

17 GIRLS (Sun, Mar 25, 7:45pm)

"Neatly balances slightly surreal events with a realistic setting, a small bunch of protagonists within a much larger group, and moments of drama with laughter" -Boy Van Hoeij, Variety
