A walk through French cinema

"Une traversée du cinéma français"


01 to 16 April 2014(*)
Free admission
At Alliance française Eildon Gallery

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Alliance Française French Film Festival, we are delighted to present a series of twenty-one portraits of some of France's biggest cinema icons impacting films of the 20th and early 21st Century.

These images, taken by photographers of the Agence France Presse, on the red carpet at renowned film festivals such as Cannes, Venice, San Sebastian, and in Hollywood retrace moments and portray some of France’s greatest beauties, sex symbols and respected actors and actresses of the big screen. Think of these actors’ lives from 1960 to 2013: Simone Signoret and Yves Montand, Alain Delon, Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu, Juliette Binoche, Vincent Cassel, Sophie Marceau, Audrey Tautou, Daniel Auteuil, and many more…

Jean-Luc Godard said: “All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun”.

In this exhibition, no gun is needed, these photographs speak for themselves!

This exhibition is presented courtesy of Agence France Presse.

(*) Please note that end date has been changed to 16 April. There will be no official opening.
