Come watch an awesome French movie, “La Nuit Américaine,” by François Truffaut. The movie will be in French but with English subtitles so everyone is welcome to join! Not a part of any French courses, just a French student trying to share her culture.
Date: Thursday, October 8 Time: 8 PM Place: Fisk 414
Do you speak French? Do you also like to act? Then audition for this semester’s production of Ionesco’s absurdist masterpiece, La Leçon.
This is a French-language production, so sides will be provided in FRENCH. If you have a French-language monologue, that’s great, but not required by any means.
Auditions will be held in 41 Wyllys, room 111:
Monday 1/26 4-6
Tuesday 1/27 5-6
There is no need to sign up, you can come whenever during the time slot and leave as soon as you’ve finished.
Questions? Can’t make these times but still want to audition? Email Laura at lhess[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

Monday, January 26th, 4:00pm – 6:00pm

1960. France. Dir: Louis Malle. With Catherine Demongeot. 89 min.
A young girl is left in the custody of her uncle for a weekend, but he soon loses her to the beckoning streets and subways of Paris. This is Malle at his most uninhibited, using the city as a playground for visual experimentation, exemplifying a distinctly 1960’s excitement for the uncharted possibilities of the film medium.
