FFFA21 Opening Night Events

You are invited to the Opening Night of French Film Festival Aotearoa 2021, and the premiere of Antoinette in the Cévennes!

“40-something primary school teacher Antoinette has been eagerly looking forward to a weekend escape with married lover Vladimir. However, their plans are upended by his wife’s booking of a surprise hiking trip in the picturesque Cévennes mountains. Completely unversed in the ways of the wilderness, Antoinette impulsively decides to follow them, and once paired with an obstinate but evidently wise grey donkey named Patrick, discovers much more than she bargained for...”
