Evenings with French Filmmakers: Claude Miller and Patrice Chéreau

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our community.

Stay connected and enjoy the #MuseumFromHome

Oct 24–31, 2003


This fall, Unifrance and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs are inaugurating a series of master classes with French filmmakers at eight American universities, and MoMA’s Department of Film and Media is hosting special public screenings. On October 24, MoMA presents the New York premiere of Claude Miller’s La Petite Lili (2003), followed by an onstage conversation between the director and Siri Hustvedt, author of the recent novel What I Loved (2003). On October 31, we honor the actor-writer-director Patrice Chéreau, Chair of this year’s Cannes Film Festival jury, who will present his acclaimed 1998 film Those Who Love Me Can Take the Train, followed by an onstage conversation with the novelist and filmmaker Paul Auster.

Organized by Joshua Siegel and Florence Charmasson, Unifrance, Paris.

Special thanks to Catherine Verret-Vimont, Unifrance/French Film Office, New York; Marie Bonnel, Cultural Services of the French Embassy, New York; Antoine Khalife, Unifrance, Paris; and Jay Anania.
