 by Bruno Dumont and the classic The 400 Blows by François Truffaut, which will be introduced by US novelist Russell Banks and the president of UniFrance, Serge Toubiana.

Interestingly, Russell Banks, who will serve as the godfather of this edition of the Rendez-Vous, will also be in conversation with filmmaker Paul Schrader, and two additional debates will be organised: one on new French comedies and another on shooting abroad. And that’s not to mention the presence of myriad filmmakers and actors who will be making the trip to New York with their movies in order to chat to audiences.
