Tehran museum to review French cinema
Art and Experience: The Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (TMCA) plans to review French cinema by screening six movies selected by Jean-Michel Frodon, the former editorial director of the French film magazine Cahiers du Cinema.
The screening program is scheduled to open at the Cinematheque of the museum tomorrow, the museum announced on Sunday.
Director François Truffaut’s 1970 film “The Wild Child”, will open the program. It tells the story of a child who spends the first eleven or twelve years of his life with little or no human contact.
French Ambassador François Sénémaud and TMCA director Ali-Mohammad Zare’ are scheduled to attend the opening ceremony.
Olivier Assayas’s “Summer Hours” (2008), Jean-Pierre Melville’s “The Silence of the Sea” (1949), Nicolas Philibert’s documentary “In the Land of the Deaf” (1992), Robert Bresson’s “Pickpocket”(1959) and Mahamat Saleh Haroun’s “A Screaming Man” (2010) are the films to go on screen during the three-day program.
Frodon is scheduled to attend review sessions, which will be organized after each screening.
