Screening “Le Havre” tonight at Fort Antoine

31 July 2020 - 7h37

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Théâtre du Fort Antoine, the Cultural Affairs Department invited the Institut Audiovisuel for two open-air screening evenings in July under the new label “Toile, étoiles”. Tonight, at 9:30pm, Aki Kaurismäki’s Le Havre will be screened free of charge, although reservations are still required.

The Institut Audiovisuel is concluding its season with a new “Toile, étoiles” label for two open-air screening evenings in July, the premiere of which was held on the 17th with the film La prisonnière du désert. The second screening therefore takes place this evening with Aki Kaurismäki’s Le Havre, which “opposes burlesque and class solidarity”. Released in 2011, it tells the story of an ex-writer “voluntarily exiled in the French port city where his job as a shoe shiner gives him the feeling of being closer to the people by serving them”. His life is turned upside down when “fate suddenly puts an immigrant child from sub-Saharan Africa in his path”. The 98-minute screening is scheduled for 9:30pm.
