French Language Women’s FilmMaking Series: Parlez-moi de la pluie

PluieUC at the Esquire Film Series: French-language Women’s Filmmaking
September 8-22, 2017

More films are made each year by women directors in the French film industry than in any other nation in the world. This series explores the thematic, cultural, and geographic diversity of that output, presenting three French films or co-productions encompassing different approaches to women’s filmmaking in the French-speaking world. Each screening is introduced by an expert in the field of French Studies or Film Studies and will be followed by a discussion.

Sponsored by the UC Center for Film and Media Studies, the department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Romance Languages and Literatures, the Alliance Française of Cincinnati and the Esquire Theatre.

Parlez-moi de la pluie / Let’s Talk About the Rain
(France, 2008, directed by Agnès Jaoui)
Following her mother’s death, author Agathe (Agnès Jaoui) returns to her hometown and agrees to be profiled in a documentary about successful women. The documentarians, however, have ulterior motives and in this “deeply felt comedy of middle-class French life” (The Guardian), lives are intertwined and relationships are examined.
