MUBI is thrilled to bring LE PARC to Deptford Cinema as part of our their Discoveries strand.

Summer time. A teenage boy and girl have their first date in a park. Hesitant and shy at first, they soon discover each other, get closer as they wander, and end up falling in love. But as the sun goes down, it is time to part… And a dark night begins.

Damien Manivel is one of France's most exciting emerging talents; he's had his work featured in Cannes, Locarno, Rotterdam and Torino. In his second feature, very much inspired by Rohmer, Hong Sang-soo and Linklater, he crafts a humorous fable about young love, walking the line between dreamscape and reality. 

One of the most beautiful films of Cannes

This feeling of first times is what Damien Manivel’s atypical cinema thrives on
— Le Monde
Manivel’s directing enchants with its candid refinement. No need for artificial effects, complicated turns. He’s a natural illusionist. For him, day and night suffice. A little short magical film.
