The French Institute is organizing evening screenings of five classic French films in the beautiful Senada garden at the French School of Athens over the next few months in a celebration of summer. The first, on Thursday, June 1, is Marguerite Duras’s 1975 drama “India Song,” starring  Delphine Seyrig, Michael Lonsdale, Mathieu Carriere, Claude Mann, Vernon Dobtcheff and Didier Flamand. Upcoming screenings include the 1964 adventure “L’Homme de Rio,” directed by Philippe de Broca, and Alain Corneau’s “Tous les Matins du Monde,” a 1991 film in which Gerard Depardieu stars as the late-17th/early 18th-century composer Marin Marais. Admission is free and on a first-come, first-served basis. In case of bad weather, the screenings will take place inside the auditorium at the French Institute.
