In the spirit of keeping our eyes peeled for what’s happening in the arts world, we’ve just organised a fantastic prize for one lucky reader! As you know, if you read this blog regularly, I see the arts as interdisciplinary, flitting between the gallery, cinema and theatre. I have a serious commitment to film, and so, I was delighted to find out the one of Cannes’ prize winning films (Un Certain Regard), Father of My Children would be opening nationwide from 5th March.
To celebrate the March 5th release of Le père de mes enfants/Father of my Children – We have a pair of tickets available to attend a Q&A screening on 3rd March with Director, Mia Hansen-Love.
The preview screening for the gentle drama, Father of my Children, will be held at the Cine Lumiere, London. The event will begin with a champagne reception at 7:30pm and will then be followed by the film’s screening at 8:30pm. After the screening the guests and winners will be invited to stay for an opportunity to put their questions about Father of My Children to the film’s director Mia Hansen-Love.
Father of My Children concentrates on Grégoire (de Lencquesaing) a happily married father of three and an independent film producer who somehow manages to juggle the never-ending demands of his company with his domestic responsibilities. Glued to his mobile and chain-smoking his way through meetings and crises, he maintains his sense of humour despite the incessant demands of his work. In addition to massaging artistic egos and keeping one step ahead of his bank, he reluctantly joins the family on an Italian holiday, but on his return, Grégoire finds he can no longer maintain any sane work/life balance. Wonderfully reminiscent of Truffaut’s Day for Night in it’s evocation of the world of European cinema.
For your chance to win just answer the following question:
What is the name of the director and film, who’s featured in the current issue of Aesthetica Magazine?
Please send your answers to Alexis Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org with Father of My Children marked in the subject line. Please send by 12pm, Tuesday 2 March. All correct entries will be added to prize draw and the winner selected at random.
