After Mademoiselle C, a friend and I went to the french film festival event: short movie made by the famous Paris-based national French film school, La Fémis. We discovered the talent of 4 young graduates who depicts the subjects of exil, youth, love and dream.
It really made me to watch further the next generation of French directors, and spread the word – you can watch a few short movies for free on their website.
