News in brief

Three screenings, a tribute event, and a discussion session were on the menu today at the Rendez-Vous With French Cinema in New York. After the screening for schoolchildren held yesterday, the focus was back onThe 400 Blows, which was presented once again by Russell Banks and Serge Toubiana, this time in a "family screening." It was followed by screenings of Whatever Happened to my Revolution (presented by its producer Marine Arrighi de Casanova), Amanda (presented by director Mikhaël Hers), ending with the major evening presentation of Sink or Swim.

In the late afternoon, Pierre Salvadori, Hélène Fillières, Sophie Fillières, Agathe Bonitzer, Pio Marmaï, and Emmanuel Mouret gathered at the Elinor Bunin Theater for a debate on the subject of "New French Comedy." During the course of this lively chat, a consensus emerged among participants on the fact that comedy makes it possible to raise the awkwardness of characters to the level of poetry.

To top the day off, the delegation headed to The Metrograph Cinema, where the love of movies is not taken lightly, to take part in an evening tribute to Michel Legrand. The event was presented by the visual artist Prune Nourry and Isabelle Giordano.
