Join Montclair Film and FIAF for a special discussion with author Vanessa Schneider and translator/actress Molly Ringwald about their collaboration on the new book, My Cousin Maria Schneider. The conversation will be moderated by actress Dagmara Dominczyk (Succession).
The memoir is a heartbreaking tribute to Maria Schneider, the 1970s movie starlet who catapulted to fame in the controversial film Last Tango in Paris—only to live the rest of her life plagued by scandal—and is told from the perspective of her younger cousin, Vanessa.
The conversation will be followed by an audience Q&A and book signing.
This event is presented in partnership with Villa Albertine and Watchung Booksellers.
