November 17: Footnotes (Sur quel pied danser…) 2016
Inspired by the films of French filmmaker and lyricist Jacques Demy (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) and American film director and choreographer Stanley Donen (Singing in the Rain), Footnotes by French directors Paul Calori and Kostia Testut, is a whimsical musical comedy. The film tells the story of Julie a young woman who might land a steady job in a luxury shoe factory. The film’s original French title is Sur quel pied danser… meaning literally “On which foot should I dance?” or in other words: “What should I do? Which side should I be on?” Indeed the shoe factory could close and its jobs sent overseas. So Julie has to decide between her livelihood and her life. Will she stand with her striking coworkers or follow her boss? What is more important: a permanent job or her future? No spoiler alert here: you will have to come and see Footnotes with its fun choreography and inspiring songs.
