Introductions by producer Jean-Louis Livi

It’s rare to see a mother-daughter portrait as idiosyncratic and personal as the one at the heart of the new film from acclaimed actress-director Noémie Lvovsky. She stars as an erratic Parisian mother steadily losing her grip on reality as her young daughter (impressive newcomer Luce Rodriguez) escapes into a fantastical world of her imagination: holding conversations with her pet owl, giving a biology class skeleton a proper burial, and even creating her own Christmas when her mom no shows. Dedicated to Lvovsky’s own mother, Tomorrow and Thereafter is alternately enchanting and cathartic as it explores how the spirit of childhood bumps up against the often-bitter realities of adulthood. With Mathieu Amalric. U.S. Premiere
