Repertory Series!
Wednesday, March 16 – Wednesday, March 23, 2011

One of the original sirens of the European New Wave, Catherine Deneuve has made a lasting impression on the cinema of almost every country. From her feature debut in THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG, Deneuve established herself as not only a woman of timeless beauty, but also as an actress of great skill. She has worked with some of the world’s most esteemed directors both in her native France (Truffaut, Demy Varda, Ozon) and beyond (Polanski, Buñuel, Von Trier). This brief survey only scratches the surface when it comes to the breadth and depth of her roles, but it serves an introduction to her range and talent.
