Do you like cinema, the French language or both? Do you want to know the most emblematic actors, actresses and directors of French cinema? The Yale French Department  Ciné Club, organized by Rébecca and Jérémy for this school year in collaboration with the Yale French Club, invites you to (re) discover a film, old or recent, that has made history. Documentaries, musicals, period films or current affairs films, there will be something for everyone! Each screening, open to everyone in the Yale Community, will be followed by a discussion-debate (in French, of course!)  

The final screening of the 2023-24 academic year will take place Fruday, April 25th at 7:30pm, in HQ L01.

Thomas Cailley’s “Le Règne Animal”   

 Our Ciné-Club is gearing up for its grand finale of the 2023-24 academic year, a screening of Thomas Cailley’s masterful Le Règne Animal!

This thrilling film, fresh from its 2024 debut in French cinemas and a stellar performance at Cannes and the 2024 César Awards, draws us into a realm where love, humanity, and acceptance of difference enter troubled waters as humans fall prey to an epidemic of animal metamorphosis.

This prescient film transcends genres, seamlessly blending elements of Ovidian anticipation with poetic fantasy. It also challenges French cinematography, with a very large budget and a style closer to American sci-fi.

Come and discover this unique visual opera on the big screen, featuring French powerhouses Romain Duris and Adèle Exarchopoulos, in a film that summons important ethical questions as well as aesthetic amazement.

The screening is scheduled this Friday 26 April at 7:30pm in HQ L01. The film will be screened with subtitles in French.

The film is screened for educational purposes within the French Department; it will be preceded by an introduction and followed by a discussion.
