FIAF honors the career of celebrated actress, musician, and singer Charlotte Gainsbourg with a CinéSalon series devoted to her work on screen.
Known for her bold choices and unfailingly independent spirit, Gainsbourg has become a muse for renowned directors from Lars von Trier to Yvan Attal. The daughter of two European stars—Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg—the younger Gainsbourg was recognized as a supreme talent by her early teens. She won the César Award for Most Promising Actress at 14 years old for her performance in L’effrontée, and has been a consistently brilliant presence in cinema on both sides of the Atlantic since. Over the course of her career, Gainsbourg has crafted a mesmerizing screen presence with raw and emotional intensity which is captured through the films in this series.
The series coincides with the presentation of FIAF’s Trophée des Arts award to Gainsbourg at its annual gala on November 4.
