About the Film
Filmmaker James Blagden expected to attend in person and filmmaker Roni Moore expected to attend via Skype for Q&A with Roxbury International Film Festival Director Lisa Simmons
Midnight in Paris is an exuberant portrait of the soon-to-be graduates at Flint, Michigan’s Northern High School, centering on their expectations and experiences of the Senior Prom. The students’ humor, style, and love, are seen in stark contrast to what the former automotive boom-town is more typically & tragically known for, beyond its city limits.
“The beauty … lies then in its warmth, the care it takes with its subjects, the efforts to preserve the specificity of their experience and simultaneously bring the audience close to them” – Kelli Weston, Film Comment
“Human, delightful, and a corrective look at how misery is not what defines are communities.” – Tambay Obenson, IndieWire
World Premiere at the 2019 True/False Film Festival. Official Selection of the BAMcinemaFest, the Sarasota Film Festival and the Freep Film Festival.
