FRENCH CLASSICAL CINEMA *SEASON 1*

Alliance Française d’Arménie, AGBU Armenia & AFG Film Club - Institut Français cordially invite you to the screening of "Mister Klein" film, by Joseph Losey. (Staring Alain Delon, Jeanne Moreau, Francine Bergé)

Synopsis: Paris, January 1942. France is occupied by the Nazis. Robert Klein, apparently apolitical, is a well-to-do art dealer, Roman Catholic and Alsatian by birth, who takes advantage of French Jews who need to sell artworks to raise cash to leave the country. One day, the local Jewish newspaper, addressed to him, is delivered to his home. He learns that another Robert Klein who has been living in Paris, a Jew sought by the police, has had his mail forwarded to him in an apparent attempt to destroy his social reputation and make him a target of official anti-Semitism.

The film was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 1976 Cannes Film Festival but lost to Taxi Driver. However, Monsieur Klein did win the César Award for Best Film while Losey won the César Award for Best Director. Alexandre Trauner won the César Award for Best Production Design, and in addition the film was nominated for Césars in four other categories.

All films screened in original version (french) with English subtitles. 
Admission is free.

BUILDING AN INDUSTRY: CREATIVE TOMORROW

BUILDING AN INDUSTRY: CREATIVE TOMORROW

On Wednesday April 19, from 10:30 to 18:00, AGBU is hosting a full day event on the Creative and Cultural Industries in Armenia. At the heart of this event is the aim to unite key stakeholders and players in the CCI’s in Armenia - from artists, to creative start-ups, to international organizations working to better existing infrastructure - in order to collectively design a vision.
Where do we see Armenia ten years down the road in the CCI’s? AGBU is asking its event partners and participants to think together in order to define the ideal eco-system for helping young innovators step-up and transform ideas into realities, and consequently determine a strategy to get there. The day begins with a panel discussion on the current climate of the CCI’s in Armenia, a conversation co-lead by UNDP’s Kolba labs, and with the participation of the British Council, EU4business, and creative players in the arts, education, and design. The day continues with sector-specific THINKshops as well as several exciting showcase presentations on Creative Gastronomy (Ingredient), Creative Oenology (KEUSH), and finally ending with an exclusive preview of the UP Design Pavilion - an exhibit uniting Armenian designers and artisans to re-think the future of design in Armenia.

Join us for this full day of creative brainstorming as we imagine Armenia’s Creative Tomorrow.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION:

The event will be in both English and Armenian, simultaneous translation will be available.
