Marine Le Pen was defeated in the French election that brought Emmanuel Macron to power, but her far right-wing party, with its nationalist, anti-immigrant platform, lives on to feed the fear and resentment that begot Donald Trump’s election. THIS IS OUR LAND is a fictionalized story of an attractive working-class single mother in the North of France who naively agrees to run for mayor, representing the Patriotic Bloc. Lucas Belvaux, who previously directed RAPT, a terrific thriller about a French politician’s kidnapping, deals with another type of kidnapping here: With the help of a charming André Dussollier as the town’s esteemed physician, the Populists’ rhetoric seizes control of the minds of the electorate. With Catherine Jacob as the blonde-bobbed leader who never met an angry crowd she couldn’t make angrier.

(1943) Fish-out-of-watered in a provincial town, coolly suave Parisian doctor Pierre Fresnay (Grand Illusion, Marius in Pagnol’s Marseilles trilogy) finds himself the target of poison pen letters from “Le Corbeau” (the “Raven” or “Crow”) — but then, slowly but surely, so does everyone else, even as an unknowingly terminal patient gets the bad news, the postmaster confiscates one addressed to his own wife, and letters literally float out of the air in public places. Hysteria and finger-pointing rule, with a suspect’s panicky flight through deserted cobble-stoned streets to the tune of an off-screen lynch mob an unnerving highlight. Made by a German production company during the — never mentioned — Occupation, though from a pre-war original script, Corbeau got Clouzot banned from the French film industry for two years post-Liberation. 4K DCP restoration. Approx. 91 min.
Restored in 4K by Studiocanal, with the support of the CNC.

New York Forum of Amazigh Film (NYFAF) - April 26 & 27 - Free! - LaGuardia Performing Arts Center
What's it like to grow up in an indigenous North African community today? How do North African women in particular negotiate their personal and professional identities? And how can film help us engage in a discussion about gender across cultures?
Such questions drive the fourth edition of the The New York Forum of Amazigh Film (NYFAF) - North African indigenous cinema - on Thursday April 26 and Friday April 27 at LaGuardia Community College in Long Island City, NY. This year we focus on the theme: Coming of Age in the #MeToo Moment: North African Women's Perspectives. All shorts, docs and features are free.
