As part of its Cinésalon series, New York’s French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) is organizing a special retrospective celebrating César Award-winning actress Jeanne Balibar, renowned for portraying zany, delightfully offbeat characters!
For more than 20 years, Balibar’s singular voice, fierce intellect, and unconventional beauty have made her a muse to some of France’s greatest auteurs. For this series, she has selected works by some of the filmmakers she feels closest to — including Jacques Rivette, Raùl Ruiz, Mathieu Amalric, and Pierre Léon.
