2019 - France/Algeria/Qatar - Drama - 2.39 - 135 min.
Algeria, 1994. With Civil War raging for years in the north of the country, each day continues to bring its share of death and horror. Police officers S. and Lotfi, two childhood friends, travel through the desert looking for Abou Leila, a dangerous terrorist on the run. In the immensity of the Sahara, their quest seems absurd, but Lofti has only one priority: to keep S. as far from the capital as possible, knowing his friend is too fragile to face more bloodshed. But the deeper they get into the desert, the more they are confronted with their own trauma and violence.
Holidays By The Sea
A film by Pascal Rabaté
2011 - France - Comedy - 2.35 DCP - 80 min.
One spring weekend on the Atlantic coast, two pensioners on their way to their second home — a maisonette no bigger than a postage stamp — cross paths with a couple of punks whose vacation residence is a house drawn in the sand. At the hotel, the lives of both couples are turned upside down by a lost kite. It is a weekend marked by the meeting of destinies, social classes, generations, and feelings of grief and of joy. A real weekend by the sea.
Despite The Night
A film by Philippe Grandrieux
2016 - France - Erotic Drama - 154 min.
English musician Lenz searches for his lover Madeleine, who has mysteriously disappeared, but tumbles into an amour fou with troubled, self-destructive Héléne.
Grieving the loss of her infant son, Héléne seeks oblivion in the murky subterranean world of a brutal
sex ring, followed by Lenz. A stark, elliptical, hauntingly spectral narrative with scenes of sensual abandon and raw carnality.
