Film: Une Nouvelle Amie (2014)

Une Nouvelle Amie

  • Jill Craigie Cinema, Roland Levinsky Building

Save event

In acclaimed writer-director Francois Ozon’s provocative French-language film, Claire discovers a secret about the husband of her late best friend, Laura. Following Laura’s death, Claire reaches out to comfort bereaved David (Romain Duris), only to discover his secret: he enjoys dressing as a woman. With dashes of George Cukor and Douglas Sirk, Ozon elevates his exploration of femininity to a new level. 

University of Plymouth clinical psychologist Dr Jacqui Stedmon and a representative from a local charity will discuss current mental health problems in young people who identify as LGBT+, and highlight the film’s portrayal of gender and sexual orientation issues. 

Dr Alastair Smith, Associate Professor in Psychology at the University of Plymouth, will introduce this event, which is part of the Celluloid Psychology series. 

This is a French-language film with subtitles in English.

'Transformations' season at The Arts Institute

This season we continue with the theme of Transformations, an apt title as we launch our new name, The Arts Institute. The feeling of change is a very live issue, which we wanted to explore in terms of transformation, when a culture or a way of thinking undergoes a complete shift or turn around. This type of change is different to the revolutionary breaks or schisms we have explored in previous programmes, rather a transformation, at least in a cultural sense, is more often associated with a positive outcome.

This also includes the personal transformations we all undergo, whether through education or new experiences. Retaining the space to have these conversations is vital and we see The Arts Institute as providing an opportunity for you to participate in these discussions alongside experiencing the very best in culture here in Plymouth.
