A bunch of friends yearning for excitement broadcast a free radio station from their hometown in the countryside. Jerome leads it with unique charisma while Philippe, the technical genius, lives in the shadow of Jerome, his big brother. When called for the military service, Philippe has no choice but to leave for West Berlin. He’s determined to keep on broadcasting, but realizes that he just lived the last glorious moments of a world on the verge of extinction.

The movie is in French with subtitles in English. 

To sustain our event and small nonprofit organization, we suggest a donation of $10 at the door for adults.

The movie is recommended for 16 year old


Refreshments are provided by The Alliance Francaise this time. 

Please bring your own mugs or cups to help us serve coffee and tea without creating waste. Thank you for your help!
