This month, Idecaf will screen four French movies and one German film at the popular venue in District 1.

But when an investigation is conducted on one of the factory’s directors, Simon’s life is turned upside down. It will be screened at 3 p.m. on June 4.

It’s June 1940 in ‘Les Egares’ and when the German troops come to the gates of Paris, Odile, a teacher, runs away with her two children, Philip and Cathy. During their escape they meet Yvan, a strange-looking teenager with a shaved head whose colorful dress sense amuses them. He joins them on the run and they find a house without electricity as they battle to survive the war. Les Egares is on at 3 p.m. on June 11.

It’s a beautiful summer day as Valmondois, Frederick, Adrienne, Jeremy and their children celebrate a 75th birthday party for their mother, Helene Berthier. She has spent her life preserving the works of her uncle, the painter Paul Berthier. A few months later, Helene is dead. The siblings are rich overnight. Will this new-found wealth keep them happy or will it tear them apart? ‘L’Heure d’Ete’ will be shown at 3 p.m. on June 18.

In ‘Le Chant Des Mariees’ it is 1942 and Nour and Myriam, both 16, have been best friends since childhood. They share the same house in a quarter where Jews and Muslims live in harmony in Tunis.
