Each year we present the latest award-winning films from across Europe throughout the month of March. Films will feature additional programing from LSU Screen Arts, including the Film School Crash Course before select titles. This year’s event will close with a special screening of IN THE AISLES before the film’s theatrical release.
Each screening will also offer wine, beer, and liquor pairings based on the country being featured.

Violette is old enough to get married when her village in the Lower Alps is cruelly deprived of all its men by the repression that followed the republican uprising of December 1851. For the next two years, the village is completely cut off. The women swear an oath that if a man should come, he will become their shared husband, so that life may continue to flourish in each of their wombs.
