Film: Un Prophète

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

Join us for Jacques Audiard’s 2009 French prison drama UN PROPHÈTE, starring Tahir Rahim, Niels Arestrup, and Adel Bencherif. The film won the Grand Prix at Cannes and nine Cesar Awards—including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actor—and was nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award. “UN PROPHÈTE pushes its protagonist into circumstances he did not choose but in which he watches and learns and kills and eventually becomes all he can be, albeit criminally,” wrote Michael Phillips in the Chicago Tribune. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

A presentation of the Yale Film Study Center and Films at the Whitney with support from Paul L. Joskow, ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
