Film Festival: Far From Men (7:00 PM - 10:00 PM)

Tournees Festival Film Series

Showing: Far From Men (2014) in the Nettles Auditorium @ 7:00pm


Set in the very beginnings of the Algerian War of Independence, Far From Men stars Viggo Mortensen as Daru, a Spanish-Algerian schoolteacher living the usual quiet life protagonists seek out before their great journey. Daru is tasked by French authorities with escorting Mohamed (Reda Kateb), an Algerian accused of murder, to the nearest city for trial. What seems at first blush to be an archetypal western – brutally barren desert and all – soon reveals itself as the story of two men buffeted by sociopolitical forces beyond their control.

Film Festival: Francofonia (7:00 PM - 10:00 PM)


Tournees Festival Film Series

Showing:  Francofonia (2015) in the Nettles Auditorium @ 7:00pm

Francofonia – not quite a true documentary, not quite a work of fiction – is Russian filmmaker Alexander Sokurov’s meditation on European history, art, and culture, centering on the Louvre museum in Paris. The film uses several narratives to expose the relationship between art and power in 1900s Europe, including the relationship between the curator of the Louvre and the Nazis’ head of artistic appropriation, historical and fictional French figures exploring the museum’s curated artistic collections, and contrasting the fate of the Louvre in 1940s France with the fate of the Hermitage Museum in 1940s Leningrad.

Film Festival: Phantom Boy (7:00 PM - 10:00 PM)

Tournees Festival Film Series

Showing:  Phantom Boy (2015) in the Nettles Auditorium @ 7:00pm

Phantom Boy is the second animated film from Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli, the animators behind the Oscar-nominated A Cat in Paris. The story focuses on Leo, a hospital-bound young boy with the ability, through astral projection, to fly through New York City, and his unlikely friendship with Lieutenant Tanguy, a wheelchair-bound cop. With Amelie’s Audrey Tautou rounding out the cast as ace reporter Mary Delauney, Phantom Boy plays with thriller and superhero tropes with Felicioli and Gagnol’s signature handdrawn art style.

Film Festival: Rififi (7:00 PM - 10:00 PM)

Tournees Festival Film Series

Showing:  Rififi (1955) in the Nettles Auditorium @ 7:00pm


Now widely regarded to be one of the peaks of French noir cinema and a classic in the heist film genre, the 1950s production of Rififi feels unlikely at best. The film was directed and rewritten by a blacklisted American director (Jules Dassin), who wrote out the original novel’s racist themes and cast an alcoholic actor in a career slump (Jean Servais) as a budget-friendly lead. The main heist scene involving the aging gangster, his young protégé, and two Italian specialists, is one of the finest and most influential heist scenes in cinema, nearly wordless and banned in some countries due to its “master class in breaking and entering.” Like all great noir films, Rififi transcends the world of the professional gangster to become an existential tragedy, full of character and authenticity.
