What TV’s on at the Institut français in June? Including a Q&A with Audrey Fleurot

La-Fête_des_mères

Very, very occasionally, TMINE lets you know what TV-related events the Institut français du Royaume-Uni will be presenting in London

Not technically a TV event, I know, but the Institut français will be screening the movie La fête des mères (Mother’s Day) on Sunday 25th June at 8.30pm, as part of its ‘Women Shaping the World’ season. So why mention it? Well, it stars Audrey Fleurot of Engrenages (Spiral)Les témoins (Witnesses), Safe et al, and she’ll be doing a Q&A afterwards:

La fête des mères (Mother’s Day)

103 mins
in French with EN subs
FRA | 2018 | dir. Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar, with Audrey Fleurot, Nicole Garcia, Clotilde Courau, Carmen Maura

Presidents, nannies, bakers, actresses, teachers, florists, journalists, doctors… These women are progressive, benevolent, clumsy, absent, omnipresent, overworked, guilt-laden… Their children both long and fear to spread their wings and leave the nest. When daughters become mothers, they realise it’s all fun and games! This ensemble film gathers on screen a first class cast including Audrey Fleurot and Carmen Maura.

Tickets are available here, standard price £12.

And if you miss her at that, she’s doing bilingual Molière in Tartuffe at the Theatre Royal Haymarket until 28 July.
