Gilles Bourdos's exquisite new film RENOIR, chronicles the celebrated artist's twilight years, his relationship with his son - the future director Jean Renoir - and the two men's relationship with Andrée, the painter's final muse and future wife of Jean.
Selected in the 2012 Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard and Lincoln Center’s Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, RENOIR is scheduled to open in New York (Lincoln Plaza Cinema) and Los Angeles on Friday, March 29 followed by a national release.
Set on the French Riviera in in the summer of 1915, Gilles Bourdos’ lushly atmospheric drama RENOIR tells the story of celebrated Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, in declining health at age 74, and his middle son Jean, who returns home to convalesce after being wounded in World War I. The elder Renoir is filled with a new, wholly unexpected energy when a young girl miraculously enters his world. Blazing with life, radiantly beautiful, Andrée (César-nominated newcomer Christa Théret)

Writer-director François Ozon (Swimming Pool, Under the Sand, , 8 Women, Potiche)’s deliciously twisted new film, IN THE HOUSE (Dans la Maison) starring Fabrice Luchini, Kristin Scott-Thomas, Emmanuelle Seigner and newcomer Ernst Umhauer is scheduled to open in the US on April 19 in New York (at Lincoln Plaza Cinema and Sunshine Cinema) and Los Angeles followed by a national release.
Francois Ozon's new film is the story of Claude (César nominee Ernst Umhauer,) a 16-year old boy who gradually insinuates himself into the house of a fellow high-school student, Rapha (Bastien Ughetto,) and writes about his schoolmate's family in essays that perversely blur the lines between reality and fiction, for his jaded literature teacher, Germain (Fabrice Luchini). Increasingly intrigued by this gifted and unusual student, Germain rediscovers his taste for teaching, but the boy’s intrusion sparks a series of uncontrollable events. Kristin Scott-Thomas plays Germain’s wife, Jeanne, a contemporary a

Co-presented with World Music Institute (WMI)
World Nomads Tunisia kicks off with an evening of mesmerizing music performed by Tunisian singer Sonia M’Barek, one of the Arab world’s leading singers.
Sonia M’Barek is renowned for her exquisite renderings of maluf (Tunisian court music traditionally performed by men), music from Egypt and Lebanon, and innovative contemporary music rooted in the centuries-old traditions of Al-Andalus. Her soul-piercing voice resonates with the euphoric, transcendental quality singers strive to attain and listeners esteem–musical ecstasy known as tarab. In this program inspired by the Arab-Andalusian repertoire and Mediterranean music, she is joined by the superb Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture ensemble.
