1. Echappées Belles: La Picardie à Bras Ouverts
Monday, July 20, at 20:30 pm EST (8:30 pm PST)
Picardy offers many treasures. With its castles, cathedrals, and old front line, the region is marked by the history of France.

2. Kitchen with Apartment
Tuesday, July 21, at 8:30 pm EST (5:30 pm PST)
The dinner organized that evening by Jacques and Martine was to be an event: It will be a succession of small dramas and end in a dramatic twist. The main guest and his wife’s two-hour delay, the overly salted haddock, Georges’s constant misanthropy, the endless poker game at the end of the meal, everything is here to keep some overexcited and some weary. | Film directed by Philippe Muyl with Jean-Pierre Bacri, Laurent Benoît, Agnès Jaoui, and Zabou Breitman (France, 1993).
3. Histoire(s) de Jardins
Wednesday, July 22, at 11 am EST (8 am PST)
Discover the most extraordinary gardens in Switzerland, each a veritable little corner of paradise hidden behind hedges and fences. Who are the enthusiasts working to create them? What are the secrets of their success ? | Lifestyle show hosted by Katharina Locher and Kurt Aeschbacher (Switzerland, 2019),
4. No Filter
Thursday, July 23, at 8:30 pm EST (5:30 pm PST)
Beatrice celebrates with her family the release of her book, in which she recounts her husband’s accident, which changed their lives. Frederick has lost his sight and cannot help saying everything he thinks: He has become an unpredictable and unfiltered man although still as funny and attractive. But this book will trigger a happy brawl, because even if Beatrice has changed the names, each of her relatives seeks to find their character. The group of friends and family rock but some storms are good. | Film directed by Eric Lavaine with Alexandra Lamy, José Garcia, and Michaël Youn (France, 2019).

Stan, Hugo and Bérénice grew up in the mountains. They were inseparable. Fifteen years later, having become adults somewhat damaged by life, they find themselves in the village of their childhood. Will this reunion allow them to reconnect with the fantasy, the carefreeness and the joy of their first years? | Film directed by Sébastien Betbeder with William Lebghil, Izïa Higelin, and Bastien Bouillon (France, 2019).
