Les Rayures du Zèbre | 3/15/2016

The Annual Francophonie Festival Atlanta will present the Belgian Movie “Les Rayures du Zèbre” [Scouting For Zebras – released in Belgium 2014] by director-writer Benoît Mariage with Belgian actors Benoît Poelvoorde [José Stockman], Marc Zinga [Yaya Koné] who won the Magritte du meilleur espoir masculin 2015 and Tom Audenaert [Koen] at the Alliance Française on March 15th,  at 7 pm.  It’s free but you must register.  See Logistics below for details.

Synopsis: Tackling a touchy subject with dark humor and complex underlying morals, the film details the shrewd maneuverings of José, a Belgian soccer expert specializing in scouting Third World talents, bringing them to Europe and making them stars.  José thinks he has found an amazing player in the Ivory Coast. When the rookie’s tryout goes poorly, both men rethink their assumptions about the game…   Check the intro with our dear actor Benoit Poelvoorde (attention language châtié).

The screening will be followed by a Belgian themed reception from 8.30 to 9.30 pm.
