Le Sacre de l'Été

<p> <em>''Kostia, a young Parisian dancer, tries to put on a show reuniting his two passions: Dance and French Variété. The relationship he builds with his dance teacher will help him accept his own sexuality.'' 'The Rite of Summer' is a bold and wicked comedy drawing an hymn to life and freedom.</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> With their second feature, FPC Production aspires to create art films both young and dynamic.
