Alliance Française Halifax (AFH) is pleased to invite you to attend on Tuesday February 25, 2020 its French Film Rendez-Vous, the monthly movie nights offered by AFH at the Museum of Natural History in Halifax. In the program, two films with English subtitles: one for young people and families and one for a general audience.

The French Film Rendez-Vous in February takes you across the ocean in search of treasure, glory and identity.

  • 6 PM: l’Ile de Black Mòr; Directed by Jean-François Laguionie (France, 2004, 1h21)

In early 1800’s England, Kid, the story’s hero, escapes prison and assembles a rag-tag crew to man his stolen vessel and become pirates. Their quest: to find the fabled and mysterious Black Mor’s Island.

Director Jean-François Laguionie first wrote the story of L’Ile de Black Mor as a novel. This work was inspired by Joseph Conrad and Robert Louis Stevenson adventures stories.

  • 8 PM: En Solitaire; Directed by Christophe Offenstein with François Cluzet, Virginie Efira (France, 2013, 1h41)

Yann Kermadec sees his dream come true when he is the last-minute replacement for his friend Franck Drevil, in the starting blocks for the Vendée Globe round-the-world, single-handed yacht race. Driven by a huge desire to win, the discovery of a young passenger on board his yacht while he’s out at sea will call into question the whole race.

The film team shot several scenes in real conditions at sea in order for the audience to get a glimpse of what it means today to sail around the world.

The price per film is $ 5,00 for students, children, AFH members and $ 8,00 for general admission.
