Free film at French Embassy and end-of-year reception after

  • Embassy of France

  • Our fearless leader, Ronn, would have posted this fun event, but he'll be having even more fun on vacation! So join us for the comedy "Microbe and Gasoline" (2015) by Michel Gondry, (Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind), which portrays the friendship between two male adolescents looking for adventure and freedom.

    Online registration is required for this screening. Here's the link.

    Microbe (Daniel), a shy, aspiring artist, has trouble making friends at school until he meets Gasoline (Theo), a likeminded outcast. Neither of them really fit in with their own families and they dream about hitting the road. Together, they hatch a plan to build a car and spend their summer on an epic trip across France.

    “If you’re my friend, you’re an independent spirit”, Theo tells Daniel, as the pair of outsiders travel the country. Mostly inspired by Michel Gondry‘s childhood, this film celebrating the power of imagination is also the story of an emancipation.

    Film starts at 7 pm but let's meet at 6:45 at the doors inside (if anyone gets there early, try to stake out some seats and post a comment; thanks). Embassy of France
    4101 Reservoir Road, NW - Washington, DC


    Parking available on Reservoir Road and across the street at Georgetown University Hospital's pay lot

    SECURITY RULES: A reservation on Eventbrite is mandatory, attendees must have a Government issued photo ID in order to enter the Embassy.


    Due to strict security measures, please arrive on time, doors will be closed at 7pm sharp

    Microbe and Gasoline will be followed by an End of the Year Reception.
