Apéro Scientifique:
Tous immortels
  French Touch:
Online Series Night
  AF Drama Club:
"Je vais bien. Pourquoi?"

Tuesday 18 June – 6.30pm
Free – First drink on us!  

In the next instalment of the Apéro Scientifique series that kicked off last November, Alliance Française Dublin and the French Embassy are delighted to invite you on June 18th to discuss the theme immortality is near.
Can transhumanism make us immortal? The race to augmented humankind is in full swing. Once a mere fantasy, the post-human age is said to be on the verge of existence. Can we put this down to the convergence of three concurrent revolutions in genetics, nanotechnologies and robotics?
Come discuss with our experts, in French! For this edition, the moderators will be Pr Noel Fitzpatrick (TU Dublin), Alan Hibbitts (Royal College of Surgeons), Dr Amélie Rouger (Teagasc), accompanied by Mr Marc Girod (Salesforce).

After many weeks of work, the Alliance Française Drama Club is now ready to present its fabulous new comedy show Je vais bien. Pourquoi? written and directed by Anne Abel Nakache, professional actress and teacher. 

This sketch comedy show is full of surprises that highlights the ridicules of our daily lives:

Taking a taxi, requesting a passport, attending an Italian class, driving to Dundrum Shopping Centre by scooter, first encounters, announcing some good news to your parents, finding a present for a hen party, an appointment at the Holles Street maternity hospital... what happens when a touch of madness comes to disrupt the well-oiled machines that are our lives?

€5 with a free glass of wine / Free for Premium Members  

Join us every month for a subtitled screening of one of the most popular box-office hits in French cinema history, preceded by an informal presentation with a free glass of wine!

This month, (re)discover the 1971 comedy film  La Folie des grandeurs by Gérard Oury. In this hilarious spoof loosely based on Victor Hugo's Ruy Blas, a tax collector of the 17th century Spanish court (Louis de Funès) tries to retrieve his job with the help of his valet (Yves Montand).

The Cinéclub is free for AF Premium Members. Win tickets on our Twitter!
