Film Synopsis: Armand and Leila are in love. Together they plan to go to New York for an internship. But few days before their departure, Mahmoud, Leila’s big brother, comes back from his long-term stay in Yemen, during which he has changed drastically. Wanting to reframe Leila’s life, that he judges indecent, Mahmoud decides to confine his sister and stray her from her boyfriend. How can Armand free Leila? For his friends, Armand has no other choice – if he wants to sneak in Leila’s apartment – he will have to wear a niqab. The next day, a new woman in niqab walks through Paris… Her name is Shéhérazade…

    Le prochain Ciné-club en plein air sera le 26 février à 19h dans le jardin de l'Alliance. 

    Synopsis du film: Armand et Leila, étudiants à Science Po, forment un jeune couple. Ils projettent de partir à New York faire leur stage de fin d’études aux Nations Unies. Mais quand Mahmoud, le grand frère de Leila, revient d'un long séjour au Yémen qui l’a radicalement transformé, il s’oppose à la relation amoureuse de sa sœur et décide de l’éloigner à tout prix d’Armand. Pour s’introduire chez Mahmoud et revoir Leila, Armand n’a pas le choix : il doit enfiler le voile intégral ! Le lendemain, une certaine Schéhérazade au visage voilé sonne à la porte de Leila, et elle ne va pas laisser Mahmoud indifférent…
