The 11th Annual Robert Classic French Film Festival — presented by TV5MONDE and produced by Cinema St. Louis — celebrates St. Louis’ Gallic heritage and France’s cinematic legacy. The featured films span the decades from the 1930s through the 1990s, offering a revealing overview of French cinema.
The fest annually includes significant restorations, and this year features seven such works: Pierre Schoendoerffer “The 317th Platoon,” Marcel Pagnol’s “The Baker’s Wife,” Olivier Assayas’ “Cold Water,” Jacques Becker’s “The Hole,” Jacques Rivette’s “The Nun,” Agnés Varda’s “One Sings, the Other Doesn’t,” and Diane Kurys’ “Peppermint Soda.”
The schedule is rounded out by Robert Bresson’s final film, “L’argent,” and two 1969 films celebrating their 50th anniversaries: Luis Buñuel’s “The Milky Way” and Eric Rohmer’s “My Night at Maud’s.”
Every program features introductions and discussions by film or French scholars and critics. The discussions will place the works in the contexts of both film and French history and provide close analyses.
All films are in French with English subtitles. Tickets for all shows are on sale now through Brown Paper Tickets.

Join Keynote Speaker Bill Kristol and Keynote Respondent Sarah Kendzior for a hard-hitting discussion on Media and Change Agency in a Divided Nation. Hear a bipartisan panel of Missouri activists and lawmakers discuss building successful coalitions for change across ideological divides.
The “Change Agent” model of leadership is closer to the “revolutionary” than the “steady-hand-at-the-helm” leadership model. Change agents can seek fundamental institutional change, but do so through existing channels (from legislation to courts to civil disobedience) instead of wholesale revolution. Our nation faces a growing need to adapt to new global, national and local realities, but is painfully hamstrung by divisions along rhetorical and ideological lines. In this environment, change agents who can bridge the divide play a crucial role. This symposium will discuss how change agents navigate today’s segmented and ideologically charged media market, and how change agents can build successful coalitions across party lines.

Left Bank Books and St. Louis Public Radio welcome Stanford professor of psychology Jennifer Eberhardt, who will sign and discuss her new book, Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do, with Race, Identity and Culture editor Holly Edgell!
You don’t have to be racist to be biased. Unconscious bias can be at work without our realizing it, and ingrained stereotypes can infect our visual perception, attention, memory, and behavior. This has an impact on education, employment, housing, and criminal justice.
In Biased, with a perspective that is at once scientific, investigative, and informed by personal experience, Jennifer Eberhardt offers us insights into the dilemma and a path forward. Unblinking about the tragic consequences of prejudice, Eberhardt addresses how racial bias is not the fault of nor restricted to a few “bad apples” but is present at all levels of society in media, education, and business.
