Films on the Green: The Rules of the Game

– June 15 2018

Films on the Green, the free outdoor film festival produced by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, FACE Foundation and the City of New York Parks & Recreation, is back this summer! Two movies will be screened at Washington Square beneath the Arch, The Scent of Green Papaya Tran Anh Hung and The Rules of the Game by Jean Renoir.

At la Colinière, the deceptively idyllic country estate of a wealthy Parisian aristocrat, a selection of society’s finest gather for a rural sojourn and hunting party. While the masters are gathered around sumptuous banquets, the servants imitate and mock them during meals at the office. Over the course of the weekend, the haute bourgeoisie acquaintances reveal themselves to be absurdly—almost primitively—cruel and vapid.
