OPENING NIGHT – LOST IN PARIS (PARIS PIEDS NUS)
6.30PM FOR 7PM | D. DOMINIQUE ABEL, FIONA GORDON | 82MINS | 15+
Start Vive la France with a spring in your step as we embark on a whimsical trip through the city of lights with a kooky Canadian (Fiona Gordon) and loveable tramp (Dominique Abel) in this charming and entirely unique comedy, reminiscent of the great Charlie Chaplin and Jacques Tati.
Fiona’s (Gordon) orderly and precise life in Canada is thrown into chaos when she receives a letter of distress from her 93-year-old Aunt Martha (Academy Award-nominee Emmanuelle Riva, Amour, 2012) who is living in Paris. Immediately jumping to action, Fiona arrives in the city of lights only to discover that Martha has disappeared. So begins a hysterical search crammed with one spectacular disaster after another as Fiona desperately scours the city with her oversized red backpack, all the while tailed by an infatuated Dom (Abel), an affable, but annoying tramp who won’t leave her alone.
With special introduction by directors Fiona Gordon & Dominique Abel
Join us for drinks on arrival plus canapés by Screenwave special guest and local purveyor of French cuisine, Chef Loic, in the Jetty Theatre foyer from 6.30pm. Film starts at 7pm.
