Rendez-vous de juillet

September 16 at 4:00
East Building Auditorium

Saint-Germain-des-Prés was the bohemian center of postwar Paris, a place where actors, artists, musicians, and philosophers mingled, jived, and jammed. Rendez-vous de juillet catches the spirit of young friends who come together in the heady atmosphere of the quartier, then drift apart when the romantic idealist in their group resolves to leave for Africa to work on an ethnographic film. (1949, subtitles, 112 minutes)
