Screening of L’Heure d’Été
February 27, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Tournées Festival is a program of FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, which aims to bring contemporary French cinema to American college and university campuses. After the globe-spanning settings of his last three films, Olivier Assayas returns home for the mournful Summer Hours, examining a bourgeois French family trying to negotiate the past, present, and future. Assayas’s sincere, complex concern about cultural amnesia—the eroding of a nation’s heritage by the demands of the international economy—is rendered so deftly that the theme becomes one of larger, less class-specific importance.
Presented by the Department of Romance Languages at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
