Free film viewing: A World Without Women by Guillaume Brac
To coincide with the release in France this summer of Guillaume's Brac's documentary L'Île au trésor (July 4) followed by his short films July Tales (July 25), UniFrance is offering viewers the chance to watch—to discover or rediscover—his magnificent medium-length film A World Without Women, which was first released in theaters in 2012.
A World Without Women, despite its atypical running time (48 minutes), is undoubtedly the film that revealed the talents of LA FEMIS Film School graduate Guillaume Brac to French audiences. This film, Brac's fourth short, takes the form of a Rohmerian fable, both filled with joie de vivre and a certain melancholy. It recounts the story of how, one glorious summer, the presence of a mother and daughter at a small seaside resort in Normandy changes the life of a young depressed and lonely boy.
This film also allowed audiences to discover two strong-willed characters in French cinema: Vincent Macaigne and Laure Calamy, who were acclaimed for their highly moving performances opposite the young actress Constance Rousseau.
This is an important film in the history of contemporary French cinema, and you now have the opportunity to watch it free of charge (with subititles available in 11 languages), until August 18, 2018.
