Led by Dr Martine Pierquin

From stories of existential ennui to passionate dramas and deadly tragedies, summertime in cinema is instrumental to shaping rich and colourful narratives.

Join Martine and explore the role of summertime in French cinema; discuss a wide selection of films from prominent directors, such as Jacques Tati’s Mr Hulot’s Holiday (1953), Eric Rohmer’s A Summer Tale (1996), plus more recent works like Heading South (Laurent Cantet, 2005) and Stranger by the Lake (Alain Guiraudie, 2013).
