Thursday 2nd August

6.30 pm Arrival for 7.00 pm


French university students navigate the cut and thrust of public speaking in this rabble-rousing romp.

As they prepare for the annual Eloquentia public speaking contest, students are pushed to their limits through theatre and rap-based exercises. Their passionate lecturers coach them with shock tactics and outrageous humour.


Several students from immigrant backgrounds invite us into their home lives but the heart of the film is the energetic training process the whole class relishes.

Uplifting and authentic ... The French have always had a way with words


Join us after the screening for delicious treats courtesy of Ainslie IGA, with a selection of Eden Road Wines & beer from Capital Brewing.
