Etienne, a serious and impressionable shaggy-haired young cinephile, leaves behind his steady girlfriend in Lyon to study film in Paris. Settling into a dingy flat with a rotating cast of roommates, he immerses himself in a bohemian world of artists, intellectuals, and fellow film geeks who excitedly share their passion for Bresson, Ford, and obscure Russian directors. It's a seemingly idyllic life until complicated matters of the flesh, as well as jealous creativity, intrude. Shot in timeless black and white and interweaving references to philosophy, music, and cinema A PARIS EDUCATION is a bittersweet ode to the heady days of student life that evokes the films of the French New Wave. Official Selection at the **Berlin International Film Festival.** Official Selection at the **BFI London Film Festival.** *"Brings to mind how some of the best French movies - especially those of the New Wave - are marked by both an intense love of film and the fiery passions of youth." - Jordan Mintzer, **The Hollywood Reporter***
