BARBARA
By Mathieu Amalric, 2017, France – 107 min – Drama
With Jeanne Balibar, Mathieu Amalric, Vincent Peirani, Aurore Clément, Grégoire Colin

For nearly four decades, Monique Serf, known to the world as just "Barbara," cut a larger-than-life figure in French popular music. Her melancholy, self-penned songs won admirers across Europe, including young Yves Zand (Mathieu Amalric, A CHRISTMAS TALE), who goes on to become a successful film director. Two decades after Barbara's death, Yves embarks on a movie about the late singer, featuring actress Brigitte (Jeanne Balibar, VA SAVOIR). As the shooting wears on, Brigitte and Yves struggle to capture the essence of an icon they know through hazy memories, archival footage, and (of course) the music.

The latest directorial outing from Amalric—one of France's most acclaimed and recognizable actors—BARBARA offers a bold challenge to biopic conventions and a brilliant showcase for Jeanne Balibar, whose multifaceted performance won the 2018 César Award for Best Actress.

FILM starts at 11:30AM and is followed by a DISCUSSION with curator Julia McMahan.
