The LIDF begins its new Parisian partnership with Lost in Frenchlation on Friday 3rd March.

Appropriately enough the season begins with Flâneurs’ – followed by a panel discussion featuring the director Matthew Lancit and other guests.

Between film projects and following the birth of his daughter, a Canadian in Paris must confront his slacker lifestyle and decide if there is something in it worth passing on to the next generation, or if he is better off getting a job. In search of the remaining traces of flâneurs (19th Century wanderers of Paris), he takes his daughter on a series of poetic strolls in which he assumes the role of a contemporary flâneur and crosses the path of people who help reveal the relevance of such a figure today. In the movement back and forth between the filmed streets of Paris and scenes from the domestic life of a young father, a dialectic emerges between a baby experiencing and making sense of the world and these wandering men trying to do the same.

Cocktails and snacks available from 20.00.
