Additional Viewing

 

In partnership with the Federation of Alliances Françaises USA: One Film One Federation.

Film is an important tool for facilitating language learning as well as understanding of other cultures. One Film One Federation highlights one very special film each year that is chosen after a rigorous evaluation. Merci to program support provided by Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the Institut français.

2021 Selection:

Rêves de jeunesse

Salome (Salomé Richard), a young, rather stoical woman on the cusp of 30, has landed a summer job as the temporary caretaker. Initially, she was supposed to live in off-site housing belonging to the owners, but when they promptly disappear after her first night, she’s forced to squat in an abandoned van parked at the dump.

The film rallies around the word “possible” in the English translation of the title – As Happy as Possible. Rêves de Jeunesse reveals both the limits society places on its young and the possibilities that young people try to create for themselves in a world that currently does not offer many choices.
