    The films of Jacques Demy

    An extravagant universe of color, whimsy, and song (courtesy of composer/lifelong collaborator Michel Legrand), the fantasy world of Jacques Demy’s films, often set on the French Atlantic coast of his childhood, pull us in again and again. Don’t miss this opportunity to bask in the joyous cinema of one of the masters of the French New Wave, currently on tour in North America in newly restored digital restorations. 

    (Series generously sponsored by Mimi and Scott Manzler. Special thanks to Janus Films, Ciné-Tamaris, Sony Pictures, Institut Français, and the French Embassy.)
