Lost in Frenchlation and La Mairie du 11ème are bringing you FREE outdoor screenings of French films with English subtitles for the second year in a row as part of the highly anticipated 10th annual La Chaise et l’Écran cinema festival! Our first of 2 outdoor sessions will be two short films followed by the classic feature length film 'L’Enfance Nue' by Maurice Pialat (1968) on August 4th.

The next and final outdoor session will be on August 18th - watch this space!

The short films to be screened with English subtitles on August 4th are:
1. « Aux Battements du Parloir » by Pascal Marc (14 minutes, 2017)
2. « T’es con Simon » by Caire Barrault (14 minutes, 2016)

“One of the most moving films about childhood ever made, 'L'enfance nue' is also one of the most tough-minded… With its clipped rhythms and documentary-like directness, it's a work of startling immediacy, concerned above all with how François reacts to the world around him, to his ever-changing circumstances. It establishes the searching sensibility that would characterize Pialat's cinema, bruisingly alive and fully in the moment.”
- LA Times review of 'L’Enfance Nue'

“An anguished foster child takes to mischief and lies as his foster parents do their best to love and care for him. But it might be too little, too late in this emotionally devastating portrayal of the orphaned child.”
- Official Synopsis of 'L’Enfance Nue'



The event will take place in the Jardin de la Folie Titon: an amazing outdoor location under the stars! Please bring your own seating, whether it's a picnic rug or chair.
