THE MUSTANG
by Laure De Clermont-Tonnerre
96 min – France/USA – in English
Trailer

The film is the first feature by French director Laure De Clermont-Tonnerre and premiered to acclaimed reviews at the Sundance Film Festival. 94% on Rotten Tomatoes! Based on her short film Rabbit, which explored a prison program few are aware of, The Mustang is both a beautiful take on the Western genre and a moving character study of an inmate who rediscovers his own humanity through the training of a horse. Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone, Sparrow) is remarkable in this soulful drama.

THE GENERAL
by Buster Keaton
78 min  – silent
Trailer

Consistently ranked among the greatest films ever made, Buster Keaton’s THE GENERAL is so brilliantly conceived and executed that it continues to inspire awe and laughter with every viewing. Shot 94 years ago, in 1926, it’s still a wonder to see the quicksilver Keaton executing mathematically precise, guffaw-inducing gags and pratfalls.

Uptown Flicks is a film series in Harlem showcasing world & independent cinema.

BRINGING WORLD & INDIE CINEMA TO HARLEM!

ABOUT UPTOWN FLICKS 

Uptown Flicks is a Harlem film series launched in 2018. The series is curated by Adeline Monzier and co-organized by Marie Gentine. The monthly series features screenings of top recent independent films from France, the US & all over the world followed by a drink to mingle and share reactions! 
The presented films all have one thing in common: they are questioning the current state of the world, sometimes with a radical perspective, sometimes with a hopeful look at humanity at its best, and end up opening our eyes about the role images and narratives play in bringing these issues to our awareness. 

WHY DID WE START THIS SERIES? 

Because we love Harlem, its diversity, its energy and we feel that when it comes to going to the movies, there are not that many options beside the blockbusters offerings. That’s why we wanted to bring more film events to this wonderful community. Also, there’s so much information nowadays that the public is overwhelmed. So our idea is to bring to the Harlem audience our “coups de coeur”, our favorite films from France but also from all over the world, films that are often overlooked but deserve your attention.  And because cinema today is also about sharing, we want our events to be a moment for all of you to share thoughts, ideas but also food and wine and to enjoy a “clé en main” event, an all inclusive event.
