Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona encore of the award-winning historical drama “De Gaulle” showing July 8-14 at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.
Based on a true story, “De Gaulle” premiered at the recent Sedona International Film Festival where it was one of the highest rated audience choice films in the narrative lineup. Audience members and critics have been raving about the film.
Soldier. Patriot. Legend.
May 1940. France is facing a disastrous military situation against the German army. Charles de Gaulle, newly appointed General, joins the Government in Paris while Yvonne, his wife, and their three children stay in the East.
Facing the defeatist attitude of Pétain ready to negotiate with Hitler, de Gaulle has one purpose: continue fighting. And along with thousands of French families, Yvonne and the children are soon forced to flee the advancing German troops.
Without contact from one another, the doubt arises: will the de Gaulle family be sacrificed for the sake of France?
“De Gaulle” will be shown at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre July 8-14. Showtimes will be 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 8, 9 and 10; and 3:30 p.m. on Monday and Thursday, July 11 and 14.
Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.org.
