To illustrate the importance of recycling and the protection of the environment, two classes from CM1 (5th class) and 6e (1st year) from the Lycée Français d’Irlande went to Shankhill beach at the end of March to help clean the beaches of Dublin Bay.
From this household waste, the pupils created a Polar bear – a symbol of global warming – as a means to bring attention to the dangerous consequences of some of our actions on our environment.
The AF invites you to discover this bear as well as an exposition recounting the stages of this pedagogical project

When magistrate Pierre Michel (Jean Dujardin) is appointed Head of the organized crime task force, he brings a commitment to the role that slowly but steadily achieves results, much to the increasing chagrin of kingpin Gaëtan Zampa (Gilles Lellouche). A breathtaking thriller about a lesser-known part of history!
