Two films will bring Texas A&M International University’s "La Vie En France French Film Series"  to a close on Wednesday, May 30 in the Center for the Fine and Performing Arts’ Recital Hall at

“L'Appartement” will be presented on  Wednesday, May 30 at 7 p.m.  This film is by Luis Gerardo Otero, based on a short story by TAMIU professor of Spanish, Dr. José Cardona-López.  This film is about Benôit and Natalia, a couple who fell in love while each searches for an apartment in Paris. 

It will be followed with “Le Chignon d'Olga,” showing at 9 p.m.

The film tells the story of a young man named Julien who loses his mother, but then finds love.  He and his entire family experience the pain of the losing of their mother, but initially can't talk about it.

The TAMIU French Film Festival was made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. 

This film series is a part of the Tournées Festival. The program is made possible with the generous support of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Centre National de la Cinématographie, the Grand Marnier Foundation, the Florence Gould Foundation and the Franco-American Cultural Fund (SACEM, the Writers Guild of America, the Directors Guild of America and the Motion Picture Association).
