Projection de Pierrot le Fou by Jean-Luc Godard, 7 pm

A classic of the French cinema with Jean-Paul Belmondo! Ferdinand takes the road with Marianne, a student that he formerly loved.

A group of gangsters hunts them down permanently, while Marianne seems to be involved in the actions of that band… With a polar as a scenario, Godard looks like he reinvents cinema.
