As part of the Cine por mujeres festival, the Instituto Francés in Madrid is screening tomorrow Friday at 8pm the film Revenir, directed in 2019 by Jessica Palud and starring Niels Schneider, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Hélène Vincent and Patrick D’asummsao. Screening in the original version with English subtitles.
Revenir tells the story of how Thomas returns to the farm where he grew up and where his family lives. His brother is not coming back… His mother is about to leave for good. And with his father, he has a bad relationship. On the farm, he finds everything he left behind twelve years earlier. However, there is something new: Alex, her six-year-old nephew, and Mona, his mother. Director Jessica Palud began working on film sets at an early age, first as a stage manager and then as an assistant director (on films by Sofia Coppola, Eric Lartigau, Philippe Lioret…). In 2016, she directed a short film, Poupée, then, in 2017, Marlon, which was selected at over 150 festivals worldwide (including Toronto and Clermont-Ferrand) and won 40 international awards. Revenir is his first feature film. Tickets can be purchased at this link.
