This year, the Festival International du Film d’Aubagne is reinventing itself to become the Festival International Music & Cinema, and will be held for the very first time in Marseille from April 4 to 9!
Despite this change, the Festival continues to focus its attention on contemporary cinematographic creation and musical creation for the image, by proposing a programme based on four axes: encouraging the emergence of young talent, promoting cultural diversity through international programmes, training talent and creating a centre for image education.
Among the films in competition this year, My Darling by Canadian director Phil Connell, set to music by Canadian composer Harry Knazan, has been selected in the “In search of diversity” category!
It will be screened on April 5 at 7.30pm (Arplexe 6) in the presence of Phil Connell and Harry Knazan.
Synopsis: Russell is at a turning point in his life: approaching 30, he is trying to make a living as a drag queen. While trying to get over a break-up, he decides to flee to the country and move in with his grandmother Margaret, who is in full decline but will do anything to avoid the nursing home.
