To mark the “Month of the Francophonie,” the Embassy of Canada, in cooperation with the French Institute, presents a one-day mini-retrospective featuring the most popular movies of well-known Canadian director Denys Arcand, on Saturday, March 23, at the French Institute.
Titles include “The Fall of the American Empire,” which is being screened in Hungary for the first time, and the Oscar-winning “The Barbarian Invasions,” says a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal. Located in the French Institute, Café Dumas will offer authentic Canadian specialties for the occasion.
The movies are in the original French, with English and Hungarian subtitles. Entry is free, with seats available on a first-come, first-served basis. The “Month of the Francophonie” aims to promote dialogue, the French language and its cultural diversity.
