CINE CLUB – Jappeloup
Wednesday, June 7th at 7:00 pm
From childhood, Pierre Durand has always had a love for horse-riding. In the early 1980s, he gives up a promising career as a lawyer so that he can devote himself completely to this overriding passion. Encouraged by his father, Pierre puts all of his energies and his faith into training a young, temperamental and undersized horse named Jappeloup, which no one else believes is championship material.
Cesar nominated film, “Jappeloup” takes an essentially self-contained, relatively decorous sport — show jumping — and turns it into a suspenseful, nail-biting series of death-defying equine leaps. French helmer Christian Duguay uses every trick in the genre playbook — slo-mo action, a sweeping score, endless reactive cutaways and shamelessly manipulative editing — to goose viewers viscerally. “The horse has heart and more than that,” is the consensus and if you can bear three falls within the first ten minutes, you will agree. There is more than a touch of romance, and combined with stunning and dramatic cinematography this film should entertain a wide audience, not just the horse enthusiast.
Presented in French with English subtitles
A discussion will follow the film. Refreshments provided!

HISTORY WORKSHOP – Thursday, June 8th
Paris vs Marseille : Deux pôles extrêmes de l’Histoire de France
