About this Event

French Touch by Marie, in collaboration with Century Soho, is thrilled to invite you to a prestigious cinematic evening with a Paris-based film director.

Join us for an exclusive cinematic and music evening with film director and actor Azize Kabouche. Coming back from Paris for the occasion, this is a very rare opportunity to meet him and get a more in-depth knowledge of his work as a film director and actor.

Mingle with guests coming from Paris and London over a special cocktail party and live music, and enjoy a unique screening of his work followed by Q/A. We will then continue the evening with another exclusive music and dance performance.

Mr Kabouche has a successful career spanning over 20 years in the theatre, cinema and television industry. He has worked alongside numerous directors and renowned actors, including Catherine Deneuve and Gérard Depardieu. He has been featured in Netflix’s Marseille and has toured the world with the play “La main de Leila.”

Last year we were privileged to host the London Premiere of "Carré 644", his latest short film, selected in various festivals.

This time, Mr Kabouche will take us into a cinematic and artistic journey through origins. His Algerian origins, the origin of his work, his identity as an artist. Sue Harris , Professor of Film Studies at Queen Mary University of London will moderate the Q/A. She is a specialist in French cinema and her publications include the only book in English on the director Bertrand Blier. Sue is Associate Editor of the UK journal French Cultural Studies. She is a regular reviewer for the BFI’s Sight & Sound magazine, and is a regular guest speaker at BFI Southbank in London.

Our guests will also meet the team of Onzalaprod, a collective of French-speaking artists making films in London. They just released their film "Louis", competing for the Nikon Film Festival.

For this prestigious evening, we are delighted to be in a special collaboration with the luxurious cognac House of Rémy Martin who will offer a complimentary drink to the first 40 guests.

We are thrilled to have two fabulous performers to add a music touch to the night. Eleonora Damizia, a multilingual talented singer and published songwriter, will perform a special jazz set for us. Eleonora's vibrant personality has graced some of the most famous live venues in London, from the grandeur of the Royal Albert Hall, to prestigious members clubs and venues such as Crazy Coqs.

We are also enchanted to have Emma Kabouche joining us for a special music and dance set. Parisian talented singer, actress, and dancer, she has just moved to London for her career.

Our guests will have special benefits from our partners, including IVINDO, an organic brand for Urban Women inspired by the Gabonese forest and biodiversity. All their products are certified COSMOS ORGANIC by ECOCERT GREENLIFE and are recyclable and safe for the environment.

Dress Code: Smart Trendy.
