The Cultural Service at the French Consulate in Houston and the German Consulate in Houston present: Joyeux Noël
On December 18th, the movie "Joyeux Noël" will be screened at AvantGarden in Houston as a collaboration between the Cultural Service at the French Consulate in Houston and the German Consulate in Houston.
With the advent of World War I, Europe is thrown into a brutal and vicious chaos as men are forced to kill or be killed. While blood soaks the battlefield as Christmas approaches, the men in the trenches of the Western Front face a transformation, however fleeting, toward peace and goodwill. Against all odds, four unlikely individuals from opposing sides (Diane Kruger, Benno Fürmann, Guillaume Canet, Gary Lewis) bond during this bloodless respite to experience the hope and goodness in humanity.
The event is free, open to the public and sponsored by the Cultural Service at the French Consulate, the German Consulate and the Goethe Institut.
When: Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 6:00 p.m.
Where: AvantGarden, 411 Westheimer, Houston, TX 77006
