CinéSalon: The Tree, the Mayor, and the Mediatheque (with Q&A with Pascal Greggory)

Pascal Greggory stars in one of his longtime collaborator Eric Rohmer’s funniest, most idiosyncratic films, as an upper-crust Paris transplant to a rural area seeking reelection to a tiny village’s city hall by building a hyper-modern media center. When a local teacher (played with mordant wit by Fabrice Lucchini) mounts a campaign to resist the mayor’s project and save a centenarian willow, a local war of words is unleashed.

After the screening, star Pascal Greggory will participate in a Q&A. The event is paired with a post-screening wine & beer reception in the spirit of the French ciné-clubs and literary salons.
