Now playing on COLCOA Virtual Cinema: SLALOM. 15 year-old Lyz, a high school student in the French Alps, has been accepted to a highly selective ski club whose aim is to train future professional athletes. Taking a chance on his new recruit, Fred, ex-champion turned coach, decides to make Lyz his shining star regardless of her lack of experience. Under his influence, Lyz will have to endure more than the physical and emotional pressure of the training.

“Snaps across your face like a blast of cold mountain air...Shot with the kineticism of bodies in motion, the sensitivity of an early Céline Sciamma film” ~ David Ehrlich, @indiewire #colcoa #virtualcinema #womenfilmmakers #french #cinema #skiing #womenski

Now playing on COLCOA Virtual Cinema, The Man Who Sold His Skin. Sam Ali, a young sensitive and impulsive Syrian, left his country for Lebanon to escape the war.

Now on COLCOA Virtual Cinema “One of the most powerful movies in Ozon’s filmography … A great film that will stick with you long after it ends.” ~ Peter Sobczynski,

BY THE GRACE OF GOD tells the story of three adult men—Alexandre (Melvil Poupaud), François (Denis Ménochet), and Emmanuel (Swann Arlaud)—who band together to expose the code of silence that continues to enable a priest who abused them as boys. Their experiences powerfully illustrate the varying effects that the trauma of abuse causes on individuals and their families for years. The true story upon which the film is based is a scandal that happened in France, with Philippe Barbarin, Cardinal of Lyon, convicted in March 2019 for concealing the conduct of Father Preynat.

Written and Directed by François Ozon, based on a true story
