SATURDAY, MARCH 30 – 5:40 PM – 1h26 – ALL AUDIENCES
Presentation by and discussion with Belgian director and screenwriter François Troukens
Frank Valken, mastermind in bank robberies, has just pulled of his final heist without a hitch. At least that’s what he believes . . . Wrongly labeled as prime suspects, Valken and his gang find themselves embroiled in a thirty-year-old criminal conspiracy case . . .
Crime Thrillers have been part of filmographies by such French directors as Henri Georges Clouzot, Jean-Pierre Melville, José Giovanni and Robert Enrico just to name a few. François Troukens continues the tradition but brings both personal and professional new twists and turns to the genre.
This screening is associated with director, author and screenwriter François Troukens’ Free Master Class taking place on Friday, March 29 in VCU’s Institute for Contemporary Art.
