This will be our last Ciné-Club film presentation until September!

This Friday evening we will see a 2013 Cannes Film Festival Selection, 2 AUTOMNES, 3 HIVERS (2 Autumns, 3 Winters) 2013, written and directed by up-and-coming Sébastien Betbeder.

Sébastien Betbeder was born in 1975 in Pau in the South West of France and attended the prestigious Ecole des Beaux Arts in Bordeaux.  He has been making shorts since 1999, this is his second feature, Nights With Theodore (2012) which won the FIPRESCI (International Federation of Film Critics) Award at the San Francisco Film Festival, was his first.

Sébastien Betbeder is part of this new generation of French filmmakers recognized by Les Cahiers du Cinéma who think French cinema has become very academic, using conventional structures and very very expensive. They felt it was time to invent.

Betbeder chose 21st century 30-something characters because he felt people love differently in 2013, they think differently about death, they are less and less neglectful and careless, they worry more. He thinks that in the contemporary world there is a pre-disposition to accidents and he wanted to show characters with the optimism of youth but facing difficult situations.
With a light budget of $400,000 he filmed over one year from Bordeaux to the Auvergne region and Paris.
