The library's free foreign film series presents an award-winning French drama directed by Clément Cogitore, screening at the Chief Theater.

"

...gripping mash-up of LONE SURVIVOR, THE THING, and THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT that pits a squad of French soldiers against a supernatural menace far deadlier than the Taliban." – The Hollywood Reporter

 

French Army Captain Antares Bonassieu and his squad are assigned to monitor a remote valley of Wakhan, Afghanistan on the border of Pakistan. Negotiating control of the region between local shepherds and possible Taliban sympathizers grows more and more tenuous for them as men from all sides start mysteriously disappearing. Unable to explain this eerie phenomenon, the soldiers find themselves embroiled in an existential nightmare, desperate for their own safety.

A French film screening bonus! Steamboat's French Club will gather before the film at

6 p.m. in the Chief Theater's Black Box Lounge for conversational French, wine specials and potluck appetizers. All French speakers welcome.
