French actress and singer Floanne Ankah recounts the Piaf story. This authentic ‘chanteuse’ and farm girl opens the door to her culture, by taking a closer look at the legendary ‘Little Sparrow’ —with that husky, mournful voice so popular in the 1940’ and 50’s. The performance is a culturally rich and moving presenta- tion that will make you smile, with tunes transporting you to other times and places.
Yes, both Floanne and Edith Piaf will be attending the rendez-vous in a medley of vintage tunes from their native France... with a modern twist. She w

After learning of the death of an elementary school teacher, Bachir Lazhar (Fellag), a 55-year-old Algerian immigrant, goes to the school to offer his services as a substitute teacher. Quickly hired to replace the deceased, he finds himself thrown into an establishment in crisis, while going through his own personal tragedy. The film features exquisite performances by Fellag and the child actors playing Monsieur Lazhar’s young students coping with grief and learning to heal.
Award-winning writer-director Philippe Falardeau’s previous works - including Congorama and It’s Not Me I Swear! - have been screened at festivals around the world including Cannes, Toronto, New Directors/New Films, Berlin and Locarno. MONSIEUR LAZHAR, his fourth feature, is an adaptation of the play “Bashir Lazhar” by Montreal playwright Evelyne de la Cheneliere.

The FIAF Gallery is pleased to present the New York debut exhibition of Françoise Pétrovitch, a widely admired French artist. Her work is featured in the public collections of several French museums and has been exhibited internationally. Her recent, large-scale installation at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature generated significant acclaim and interest in her work.
In Inklings, Pétrovitch pairs her whimsical yet unsettling ink wash drawings with a video installation of over 200 designs. Ethereal and haunting, the raw animal drawings are simultaneously infused with a sense of intimacy and fragility. A sculptor with extensive experience, including at the historic Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, Pétrovitch brings a powerful sense of substance and form to her two dimensional drawings.
Tour this engaging exhibition and explore Françoise Pétrovitch’s imaginative world.
Free and open to the public.
