Film and Art at Institute Francais du Cambodge

To mark French Week the Institute Francais of Cambodia is showing two films.

French Cancan (dir. Jean Renoir, 1955, France, 1h37m, French), will be screened at its own cinema on Mar. 6 at 2.30pm, 4.30pm and 6.30pm. A tale of a love triangle, jealousy, betrayal, revenge and the debut of the cancan at the Moulin Rouge.

Meanwhile at Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeetra, there is a screening of Piece Montée (dir. Denys Garnier-Deffer, 2010, France, 1h33m, French dialogue) on Mar. 8 at 7pm. A spring Sunday in a country church, a typical bourgeois wedding, the guests have gathered to celebrate the nuptials, enjoy reunions and settle old scores.

Free entrance to both films.

The Institute Francais will also launch two new exhibitions on Mar. 7 at 6.30pm. Both exhibitions run until Mar. 30.

Khmer Boxers is a series of 22 portraits of boxers by Antoine Raab. Between seven and 35 years old, the boxers are photographed minutes after fighting. Exiting the ring, they muster their remaining strength to pose for Raab’s camera, capturing their emotions immediately post-fight.

In Imagination, LimKeo expresses the world of his imagination onto canvas, rendering the landscapes around him visible to others. This is the artist’s first exhibition of paintings.
