Sep. 28: French Film Series concludes: Avril et le monde truqué

The work of the great comic book artist Jacques Tardi is cleverly and beautifully carried to the big screen in April and the Extraordinary World (Avril et le monde truque), a surreal sci-fi period piece that reimagines mid-20th century Paris as a smog-filled, steam-powered Napoleonic empire whose future lies in the hands of an orphaned young woman, voiced by French star Marion Cotillard.

6pm – 8pm in the Library Events Area
