PARISIENNE introduces a luminous new talent, Manal Issa, as Lina, a young Lebanese woman coming of age in mid-90s Paris. Lina has come to Paris to study at university, but quickly finds herself on her own (in part due to the advances of a lecherous uncle, and in part due to her own adventurous spirit). Her beauty, intelligence, and remarkable self-possession see her through various odd-jobs and stays in shelters, as she navigates her new city, aided by unlikely friends and entranced lovers. Lina's status as a immigrant comes to the fore in an empowering conclusion that underscores the timely message of the film. The film had its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, before screening at Palm Springs. PARISIENNE will have its New York premiere at Rendez-Vous With French Cinema in New York City on March 10th and 12th.
