In this dystopic steampunk landscape, scientists have mysteriously disappeared for decades and April Franklin, the brilliant young descendant of a long line of chemists is in danger of being next.

      Tournées French Film Festival: Marcel Proust’s Time Regained
      Raúl Ruiz’s opulent adaptation of Marcel Proust’s monumental In Search of Lost Time. Ruiz captures the essence of Time Regained and turn-of-the-century France in “a surprisingly
      profound yet accessible digest of Proust’s themes and leading characters… to create a self-standing, utterly captivating film that adds an original vision of cinema to Proust’s meditations on the passage of time, the construction of memory, and the evolution of relationships and society.”
      Director: Raúl Ruiz
