Week-end du cinéma français 2024

A celebration of compelling French films. Presented in partnership with the Columbus Council of World Affairs, StudioCanal, and Distrib Films, and thanks to the generous support of Donna and Larry James.

About the film:

Parenting a teenager is hard enough, but for Antonia ‘Toni’ Livesi, being the sole parent of five teenagers while earning a living as a bar singer is nearly impossible. Despite a brief taste of fame twenty years ago with a hit song, Toni’s life is very much an ordinary one, structured around kids and their squabbles, meals, laundry, housecleaning and work. As her two eldest children prepare to start university, she finds herself questioning her life and where she will go next. At 43, is there still time to try something new?

About the filmmaker:

Nathan Ambrosioni is a French filmmaker who made his entry into the industry with two self-produced genre films in 2014 and 2015 during his school holidays. These two “holiday” projects went on to tour the world at festivals in Brussels (BIFF), Los Angeles (Screamfest), Montreal (Fantasia), Barcelona (Sitges), and Buenos Aires (BAFICI).

In 2016, Ambrosioni switched genres, moving into more intimate cinema. He wrote and directed the short film First Breath (2016) starring Zoé Adjani, which was ultimately selected for the Calgary and San Francisco Film Festivals. In 2017, he began to work on his feature-length directorial debut Paper Flags (2018), which later won the Jean-Claude Brialy Audience Award at the Angers European First Film Festival. Ambrosioni wrote, edited, and directed his latest feature, Toni (2024).
