As UniFrance’s American ambassador for the 2019 edition of Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, renowned novelist and poet Russell Banks (The Sweet Hereafter, Cloudsplitter) will sit down with Paul Schrader (First Reformed, Taxi Driver), to reflect on French cinema and culture, as well as the process of adapting literature to the screen.

Update: Due to an unforeseen emergency, Bertrand Tavernier can no longer attend Rendez-Vous with French Cinema. Schrader will now join Banks for the free talk.
