Vivre sa jeunesse

May 8 - June 23, 2013

The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything, the young know everything.
Oscar Wilde

Pera Film’s spring-summer season finale is “Vivre sa Jeunesse,” a program exploring the wonderful theme of youth. Presented in collaboration with l’Institut français, the selection includes narrative and documentary genres, with films discovering the beautiful as well as the hardships of what it means to come of age and how one copes with life, love and, change.
