Filmmaker Michael R Roskam, nominated for an Oscar for Bullhead, reteams with lead actor, Matthias Schoenaerts, for a love story set in the glamorous world of motor racing. He is Gigi, a violent bank robber who falls for the charms of female racing driver Bibi, Adèle Exarchopoulos, who has no idea that the new man in her life is a criminal.
Roskam’s intense, character-driven drama, which unfolds in three parts, is a gritty tale of an unlikely romance with charismatic lead performances.

Head off to our Twitter page, we have vouchers for the Roderic O’Conor and the Moderns, Between Paris and Pont-Aven" exhibition at the National Gallery of Ireland!

Don't miss this unique opportunity to see the works of one of the unsung masters of Irish painting, and one of Ireland's main contribution to the revolution in European Art in the late nineteenth century. This exhibition examines Roderic O'Conor's evolution from impressionism to his signature expressionist style, but also places his work side-by-side with that of the artists with whom he connected and collaborated while staying in France, including VanGogh, Gauguin, Seguin, Befan, and, above all, Amiet.

Discover the Cinéclub's new format! Join us every month for a subtitled screening of one of the most popular box-office hits in French cinema history, preceded by an informal presentation with a free glass of wine!

This month, (re)discover a fully restored and coloured version of the classic 1949 French comedy film Jour de fête starring Jacques Tati in his directional debut as an inept and easily distracted mailman in a backward French village. Somewhere between slapstick and experimentation, Jour de fête was a record-breaking hit and established Tati's reputation as a major director and auteur.

The Cinéclub is free for AF Premium Members. Win tickets on our Twitter!
