New York FIAF introduces Burning Bright: New French Filmmakers

The New York French cultural center will open this special CinéSalon with the American premiere of This Summer Feeling, Mikhaël Hers' opera prima.

This summer, the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York’s premiere French cultural center, is thrilled to present "Burning Bright: New French Filmmakers", a special CinéSalon series devoted to new voices in French cinema. Featuring genres spanning romantic comedy, epic fantasy, and drama, each of these films represents a bold vision and a unique perspective on today’s cultural landscape.
Four films in the series, Astragalus, The Last Hammer Blow, Vincent, and Eat Your Bones are part of Young French Cinema. A program made possible with the support of Unifrance and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Young French Cinema provides an alternative distribution platform for films by emerging French filmmakers to be shown in arthouse cinemas, universities, and film societies throughout the US.
Burning Bright kicks off with the US Premiere of Mikhaël Hers’s This Summer Feeling (2015), presented in partnership with UniFrance, an intimate, atmospheric drama starring Anders Danielsen Lie as a young man mourning the sudden death of his girlfriend. With lush cinematography and a bright, upbeat score, the film follows its protagonist over three summers as he floats through Berlin, Paris, Annecy, and New York, in an elegant and elegiac portrait of grief and recovery. Director Mikhaël Hers will take part in a Q&A following the June 7th (7:30pm) screening.
