Le bal des actrices

Tuesday 7 February 2012 18:00-20:00

Institut Français d’Écosse

13 Randolph Crescent Edinburgh EH3 7TT

From January to March, the Institute presents a season of films in which women have the main role. Three films, three different women stories, dramas or comedies, and a common questioning about their place in Society.

The female filmmaker Maïwenn wants to make a documentary about actresses of all kinds: the popular ones, the unknown, the intellectuals, the comics and the forgotten... Filming absolutely everything, with or without their permission, the director will be pulled into the game and let herself be devoured by these women as fragile as they are manipulative....
