The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) is the place to enjoy the best of French cinema with weekly CinéSalon screenings. In celebration of Bastille Day, FIAF invites you to a special sneak-peek screening of Le Brio.

Le Brio, a 2018 César nominee for Best Film, follows the relationship between a young Arab student (Camélia Jordana) from the Paris suburbs and a racist professor (Daniel Auteuil), whose perspective changes when he becomes her mentor.

Neïla Salah grew up in Creteil, and dreamed of becoming a lawyer. Enrolled at the renowned Assas Law School in Paris, on her first day she runs up against Pierre Mazard, a professor known for his provocative behavior and misconduct. To redeem himself, he agrees to help Neïla prep for a prestigious public speaking contest. Cynical and demanding, Pierre might become the mentor she needs… But to do that, both of them will have to rise above their prejudices.

Directed by Yvan Attal. 2017. 95 min. Color. DCP.
With Daniel Auteuil, Camélia Jordana, Yasin Houicha, Nozha Khouadra.
