    Strand Releasing is proud to announce the release of FÉLICITÉ, the new film by award-winning French director of Guinea-Bissauan and Senegalese descent Alain Gomis, and the winner of the Silver Lion at the 2017 Berlin International Film Festival. Set in Kinshasa, FÉLICITÉ - a selection of the 2017 New York Film Festival - follows a fiercely independent club singer whose life is thrown into turmoil when her teenage son is seriously injured. FÉLICITÉ is scheduled to open in New York on Friday, October 27th at The Quad Cinema followed by a national roll out.

    Living her life in the chaotically vibrant Congolese capital of Kinshasa with a proud defiance, Félicité doesn't need marriage, a man, or even love to get by. But when her son is injured in a traffic accident, she must find a way to pay for his operation, and embarks on a double journey: through the punishing outer world of the city and the inner world of the soul. FÉLICITÉ is tough, tender, lyrical, mysterious, funny, and terrifying, b

    Directed by Jean Renoir

    Screenplay by Jacques Prévert

    (1936) In a hotel on the Belgian border, the locals are agog over one of the newly-arrived guests – could he be the notorious Parisian murderer on the run? Then a woman, the man’s lover, emerges to tell the whole story: in a convivial courtyard, l’amour is in the air, as the vivacious Florelle, patronne of an all-girl laundry, has eyes for René Lefèvre’s mild-mannered Monsieur Lange, who cares mostly about writing his lurid “Arizona Jim” Western adventures (despite never having set foot in America). Next door, a print shop churning out pulp magazines hums away, bossed by Jules Berry’s dastardly Batala (“a sublime creation of villainy” – André Bazin), arriving at dawn in a tuxedo, dodging creditors, and relentlessly hitting on young female staffers. But then things suddenly change,

    Directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer

    Starring Falconetti

    Featuring Richard Einhorn’s Voices of Light

    (1928) 1431, and the charismatic, mystic warrior Joan is led before her English and French inquisitors for the last day of her trial for heresy. Danish director Dreyer condensed months of interrogation into a single day, with all dialogue taken from the still-extant transcripts, built a gigantic re-creation of the city of Rouen, stylized in the manner of medieval illuminations, then hardly showed it at all as he concentrated on a non-stop set of brutally realistic, often low-angled close-ups of fevered intensity never before seen on screen (and seldom since), sans makeup or flattering lighting, focusing closest on what, per Pauline Ka
