Virtual CinéSalon Series

Looking Back: From Powdered Wigs to Pagnol

November 3, 2020–January 4, 2021
Available on Kino Marquee


From the courts of Versailles to pre-war Provence, Looking Back: From Powdered Wigs to Pagnol will transport audiences back in time. The nine period films featured in the series are more than escapist fantasies; they vividly and lavishly enliven classic French novels, revisit cinematic masterpieces, and reexamine social mores and gender roles through a contemporary lens.

Films are free for FIAF Members!
