To celebrate the European Day of Languages, the European Commission and the Alliance Française are organising a very special screening of the French cult movie Le Dîner de cons subtitled in Irish, an adaptation of the play by Francis Veber.

Chun Lá Eorpach na dTeangacha a cheiliúradh, tá an Coimisiún Eorpach agus an Alliance Française chun an scannán Fraincise, Le Dîner des Cons a léiriú. Athchóiriú is ea é ar an drama le Francis Veber, agus táthar tar éis fotheidil Ghaeilge a chur leis.

The screening will take place in the newly refurbished French Library.

Lucile Boiron studied Applied Arts before turning to photography as a natural step when she attended the Ecole Nationale Supérieure Louis-Lumière in Paris.

In March of last year, Lucile Boiron began visiting the refugee camps where dozens of men and women would run aground daily after their long trek to a potentially better future. At first incapable of taking the slightest photo, she tried to help appeasing the hunger, the thirst, the cold. After all, what insight could a person who had been born on the “right side” bring?

Our French Film Club screening this month Joachim Lafosse’s L’économie du couple (After love). After 15 years together, Marie (Bérénice Bejo) and Boris (Cédric Kahn) are calling it quits, but until they can resolve their separation agreement – most notably the division of their prize asset, the apartment they share with their young twin daughters – they're still living together. The latest feature from acclaimed Belgian director Joachim Lafosse is about the ties that bind us after love has gone.
