by Guillaume Brac was discovered and well-received last year at the Berlinale’s Panorama.  

Completing the selection are Lifelines from the always fascinating Fabienne Godet, 5ème set by Quentin Reynaud (starring Alex Lutz as amply believable professional tennis player in crisis trying his last chance at the Roland-Garros qualifying round) and Faithful by Hélier Cisterne (set in the colonised Algeria of 1956 and focusing on anti-colonial activism, starring Vincent Lacoste and Vicky Krieps).

The 18 films (all vying for an audience award) will be followed by virtual Q&As with the filmmakers, and this edition of the Rendez-Vous With French Cinema in New-York is also offering online conferences such as "How Music Makes the Film" and "Vive la Résistance" (about the representation of social justice and activism in recent French and American cinema).
