In the framework of the “Printemps Francophone 2020”, on March 4, the Embassy of Switzerland organized a screening of the Swiss film “the Woman and the TGV” by the young Swiss director Timo von Gunten. Mr. Alain Maniciati, representative of the Swiss Embassy, welcomed the spectators and emphasized that Switzerland is a member of the “Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie” since 1989 and remains one of its largest donors.
“The Woman and the TGV” is a romantic film linked to the journey of the TGV high speed train though Switzerland. The film is inspired by real events. The main character, Elise Lafontaine, finds inspiration thanks to the train driver and opens up to new adventures in her life.
Beside Nur-Sultan, Almaty and Oskemen, the film will be projected also in Shymkent and Karagandy. The full program of the “Printemps Francophone 2020” can be found under the following link: www.culturefrance.kz
