SORRY ANGEL
 
by Christophe Honoré 
132 min – France – English subtitles 
Trailer

The ever-unpredictable Christophe Honoré (Love Songs) returns with perhaps his most personal, emotionally rich work yet. At once an intimate chronicle of a romance and a sprawling portrait of gay life in early 1990s France, Sorry Angel follows the intertwining journeys of Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps), a worldly, HIV-positive Parisian writer confronting his own mortality, and Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), a curious, carefree university student just beginning to live. Brought together by chance, the men find themselves navigating a casual fling that gradually deepens into a tender, transformative bond. The film opens on February 14th on US screens. 

Tickets : $20 including a cocktail party after the screening with complimentary food & drinks.

about

Uptown Flicks is a new 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.

THE UPTOWN FLICKS TEAM

Adeline works as the US rep for UniFrance, the French organization promoting French Cinema in the world.
