The first three episodes of the series “Noces Rouges” (Red Weddings) were screened at 7pm on July 12th, at the Prado cinema in Marseilles, with some of the actors present.
Written by Jeanne Le Guillou and Bruno Dega and directed by Marwen Abdallah, the series’ opening scenes show a young woman, Sandra, preparing for her wedding. Her parents are well-known in the region for their restaurant, and her sister Alice has come back to home for the wedding after a long absence. But the joy of reunion is short: a few hours after the wedding, Sandra is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. What at first looks like suicide could be murder. Vincent, a member of the family, begins to investigate and, lifting the veil of appearances, discovers dark family secrets.
The series was produced by Scarlett Production, 13 Productions, France Télévisions, Be-Films and RTBF with the support of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region in partnership with the CNC and with the participation of TV5 Monde and the RTS.
