Join us at FIAF for a special screening of Invisibles, part of the final day of the Focus on French Cinema Festival.

Dir. Louis-Julien Petit, 2018, 102 minutes, DCP
With Audrey Lamy, Corinne Masiero, Noémie Lvovsky, Déborah Lukumuena
In French with English subtitles

When a town in France decides to close a homeless shelter for women, the social workers have only three months to help its residents get back on their feet and reintegrate into society. Inspired by a book and documentary by author/filmmaker Claire Lajeune, director Louis-Julien Petit cast well-known comedic actors alongside nonprofessional ones, including a few women who appeared in Lajeune’s film. The result is a film that humorously honors the resiliency of the human spirit while poignantly bringing attention to an underserved community.

“Carried by great actresses, Les Invisibles blithely mixes tones (sometimes dramatic, sometimes hilarious) and genres (between realism and storytelling).”
Le Parisien
