French Embassy Screens 'The Human Beast' July 11

As part of its Summer film series "Once Upon a Time: From Books to Movies", the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present the screening of the 1938 film The Human Beast by Jean Renoir on July 11, 2017 starting at 7:00 pm.

Based on the classic Émile Zola novel, Jean Renoir’s La Bête Humaine was one of the legendary director’s greatest popular successes—and earned star Jean Gabin a permanent place in the hearts of his countrymen. Part poetic realism, part film noir, the film is a hard-boiled and suspenseful journey into the tormented psyche of a workingman.

Admission is free but online registration is required for this screening.

Parking available on Reservoir Road and across the street at Georgetown University Hospital's pay lot.

SECURITY RULES: A reservation on Eventbrite is mandatory, attendees must have a Government issued photo ID in order to enter the Embassy.

Due to strict security measures, please arrive on time, doors will be closed at 7:00 pm sharp. Please allow extra time for security screening.

Embassy of France is located at 4101 Reservoir Road NW.
