The New Wave hits Kildare Street with Alliance Française


The French Language & Cultural Centre in Dublin, Alliance Française, will be beginning a series based on the films of the French New Wave, with screenings free of charge beginning next week.

Alliance Française Dublin along with musicologist Dr Laura Anderson is organising a 3-movie-cycle of cinema titled “Disruptive Soundscapes”. This fascinating series will focus this year on the sound in the films of the French New Wave movment.

The first film of the season is the Les Cousins (1959), one of the earliest French New Wave masterpieces which brought its director Claude Chabrol to critical attention and wide acclaim alongside Le Beau Serge (1958).

In her post-screening talk, Dr Anderson will situate the soundtrack for Les Cousins in relation to French New Wave film music and will discuss the film’s use of original music by Paul Misraki alongside extensive employment of pre-existing classical music, notably Wagner.

This screening is free to attend and will be taking place at Alliance Française Dublin on Kildare Street next Tuesday, 8th of October at 6.30pm. You can book your place at this event now here.
