Celebrated French director Bertrand Tavernier is in town to promote his new documentary, A Journey Through French Cinema (screening Thursday, June 15, at the Aero Theatre). As film noir figures prominently in his essay-film, he has curated a series of French crime dramas — some well-known, some obscure — to supplement the release. Tavernier's five-night series kicks off with a 1950s Jean Gabin double feature. In Razzia sur la chnouf, Gabin — sometimes called "the French Bogart" — plays a gangster who must navigate between the cops and the narcotics ring that employs him. In The Night Affair, he plays a police inspector who falls in love with a dope addict. Tavernier will introduce each program in the series, which runs through June 19.
