FIAF honors the great French composer Michel Legrand, who died in January of this year, with a special CinéSalon series devoted to his life and work. Curated by one of his longtime collaborators and greatest interpreters, singer and actress Melissa Errico, Summer of Michel Legrand brings together seven of his films from his best known triumphs such as The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and The Young Girls of Rochefort to lesser known gems such as the enchanting fairy-tale musical Donkey Skin.
Errico, who starred in Legrand’s 2002 musical Amour, spurring a prolific and fulfilling artistic collaboration over two decades, will take part in a Q&A following the screening of The Thomas Crown Affair on July 16.
On July 30, the closing night of the series, join us after the screening of The Young Girls of Rochefort for karaoke featuring a special Legrand song-list.
