Join us for a screening of Léa Mysius' «Ava» (2017) at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, presented as part of the popular Boston French Film Festival!

Beautifully shot on 35mm film, this sun-drenched drama follows a 13-year-old girl who learns that her eyesight is rapidly deteriorating. As she vacations with her mother and baby sister by the seaside, Ava’s behavior becomes increasingly brazen and wild; she meets a handsome boy who lives among the ruins on the beach, and together they embark on a romance-turned-crime-spree evocative of Terrence Malick’s «Badlands» (1973). First-time director Léa Mysius uses celluloid film to capture the dazzling contrast of sun and shadow, simulating Ava’s increasing sensitivity to light.

The Boston French Film Festival features an eclectic lineup of the best new French cinema during the month of July: bit.ly/2zcVfxR

This screening is co-presented with the Boston Women's Film Festival.

The Ruth and Carl J. Shapiro Film Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, is funded by the Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family Foundation. The Boston French Film Festival is coordinated by Carter Long, Katharine Stone White Curator of Film and Video, Katherine Irving, Alexis Weinrich, and Charles Cohen. Co-presented with the Cultural Services Office of the Consulate General of France in Boston. Co-sponsored by TV5MONDE, the global French language entertainment network. Additional support provided by the French Cultural Center.
