Doxa documentary festival - french french
From May 2 to May 8
Guest curator Thierry Garrel programmed this selection of archival and new French documentaries, and also contributed a lively essay to Doxa program guide this year. The gift of French cinema to the world may have launched with the four R’s (Renoir, Rivette, Rohmer, and Rouch) but has expanded to include a new generation of extraordinary filmmakers.
As part of French French, Doxa is proud to present a special selection of films drawn from the legendary series Cinéma, de notre temps (Cinema, of Our Time). This group of films traces the evolution of French cinema from Jean Renoir to Alain Cavalier. André S. Labarthe will personally introduce the program on Saturday May 2, 2015 at 11:00 AM with a special talk at SFU’s Goldcorp Centre for the Arts.
