Description

The Avon Theatre presents a French Cinematheque screening of THE GUARDIANS, co-presented by Focus on French Cinema. This affecting human drama of love, loss and resilience unfolds against the backdrop of World War I. The women of the Paridier farm must grapple with the workload while the men are off at the front. Acclaimed filmmaker Xavier Beauvois revels in the mysteries and the beauties of the French countryside, here unravaged by war, with painterly images bathed in natural light, yet keeps his focus on the intricate drama that plays out against the upheaval of the Great War.
Please join us for a post-film discussion hosted by Joe Meyers of the CT Post.
