Bring the family for an outdoor screening of April and the Extraordinary World in partnership with the Cultural Service at the French Consulate of Chicago as part of their series Films on the Lake. An imaginative and breathtaking animation based on work by Jacques Tardi, this steam punk world is set in an alternate timeline, Europe 1941.
