Stephane Wrembel’s "Django L’Impressionniste" at FIAF

Guitarist Stephane Wrembel, best known for writing the theme song for the Grammy-winning soundtrack to Woody Allen’s 2011 Oscar-winning film Midnight in Paris, and acclaimed for his innovative musical interpretations of Gypsy legend Django Reinhardt, makes his FIAF debut with the North American premiere of Django L’Impressionniste. The concert celebrates the release of his new record featuring 17 meditative solo works by Reinhardt influenced by Ravel and Debussy. The one-night-only event features Stephane Wrembel exploring the little-known “impressionist” side of the legendary musician, whose work has inspired guitarists from Andrés Segovia to Chet Atkins. The Paris-born, U.S.-based guitarist, creator of the Django a Gogo Festival, reveals the other side of Django’s genius beyond Gypsy Jazz.

FIAF Exclusive Screening: "Les Misérables"

Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. Selected to represent France at the 2020 Academy Awards. FIAF and Amazon Studios invite you to an exclusive preview screening of Ladj Ly’s ambitious debut feature, Les Misérables. Inspired by the 2005 riots in Paris with a nod to Victor Hugo’s famous novel, the film is a gripping look at social injustice today. Les Misérables follows Stéphane (Damien Bonnard), a recent transplant to the impoverished Paris suburb of Montfermeil—where portions of Hugo’s novel was set—as he joins the local anti-crime squad. Working alongside his unscrupulous colleagues Chris (Alexis Manenti) and Gwada (Djebril Zonga), Stéphane struggles to maintain order amidst the mounting tensions between local gangs. When an arrest turns unexpectedly violent, the three officers must reckon with the aftermath and keep the neighborhood from spiraling out of control. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Ladj Ly.

FIAF CineSalon Series: "Melancholia"

A controversial masterpiece by Lars von Trier’s, a iconoclastic yet undeniably towering figure in contemporary cinema, Melancholia is an aesthetically sublime dive into the murky waters of depression. Starting with a botched wedding party for the ages and culminating in the earth’s collision with a rogue planet, Melancholia would be a grim ride if it weren’t the exquisitely conceived, fearlessly honest work of a true original.
