The monthly French Cinémathèque series at the Avalon Theatre, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, presents the screening of the 2016 film Cézanne et moi by Danièle Thompson.

Academy Award nominated French writer-director Danièle Thompson’s Cézanne et moi, a riveting 19th-century period drama starring Guillaume Canet and Guillaume Gallienne as two of French culture’s legends, the novelist Émile Zola and post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne. Cézanne et moi chronicles the decade-long friendship between Cézanne, who was born into a wealthy family but struggled to make a living as a painter, and Zola, who came from a poor background but achieved notoriety as a novelist. The film traces the parallel paths of their lives and careers from Aix-en-Provence to Paris, while exploring their fears and ambitions.
