Annual Recital

Until 30 June
Admission free

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Jacques Prévert's death, the Alliance Française, with the support of the French Embassy in Ireland and Institut Français, is pleased to host an exclusive exhibition of Jacques Prévert's collages.
We find the same themes in Prévert’s collages as we do in his writings: Through the association of disconnected images and diversions, he invites us to think about the world as it truly is and humorously yet vehemently denounces the power of politics and the Church, society with its injustices.

Selections will include Authentik, Surf Therapy, Kill Skills or Gabriel among others.

Actress/director Nicole Garcia’s adaptation of Milena Agus’ novella features another wholly immersed performance from Marion Cotillard as Gabrielle, a rebellious spirit in post-WWII France.
Beginning in the 1950s, Garcia presents an extended flashback to 1940s Provence where Gabrielle’s flagrant disregard for social norms leads her harried parents to give her an ultimatum: choose marriage or the madhouse.
