Olivier Assayas at the 41st Hong Kong International Film Festival

The 41st edition of the Hong Kong International Film Festival, which will take place April 11 through 25, 2017, will show many French films. Olivier Assayas will attend to present Personal Shopper during the French Night on April 21.

Olivier Assayas is currently preparing a quick tour through Asia. He will present Personal Shopper during the French Night of the 41st HKIFF, prior to the film's Hong Kong release. During the festival, the director will also give two masterclasses and present a special screening of Carlos.

Prior to this, Assayas, who is extremely popular in Asia, will also pass through Tokyo for the film's theatrical release in Japan. Then, after Hong Kong, he will travel to Bangkok to accompany the film's release in Thailand.

Personal Shopper is not the only French title to shine at the Hong Kong International Film Festival. The Red Turtle will be presented at a Gala Screening, while other French titles sparkle among the various sections, in particular those devoted to arthouse cinema. Let us note the presence of  Frantz by François Ozon, A Woman's Life by Stéphane Brizé, Heal the Living by Katell Quillévéré, Mum's Wrong by Marc Fitoussi (who will travel to the festival), The Son of Joseph by Eugène Green, and This Is Our Land by Lucas Belvaux.

Finally, a Robert Bresson retrospective has been set up, with the screening of four films : Pickpocket, A Gentle Woman, A Man Escaped, L'Argent.
