Valeria Bruni Tedeschi's "Les Trois soeurs" to make its U.S. premiere at Lincoln Center
Valeria Bruni Tedeschi steps behind the camera for "Les Trois soeurs" (Three Sisters)- an idiosyncratic, half-modernized adaptation of one of Chekhov’s greatest, most expansively melancholy plays.
For her latest project, commissioned by Arte and starring members of the Comédie-Française, director Valeria Bruni Tedeschi presents the three sisters of the title- two unmarried, one unhappily married- as they congregate in their family’s ancestral house and, along with the additional soldiers, debtors, pensioners, and spouses who populate the play, struggle to give their futures a shape. From a translation by André Markowicz and Françoise Morvan, the film will make its U.S. premiere at Lincoln Center's 21st edition of "Rendez-Vous with French Cinema", which will take place March 3-13.
“This year’s lineup exemplifies the diverse creativity coming out of the country year-round, including a record eight films directed by women,” explains the Film Society of Lincoln Center Associate Director of Programming Florence Almozini. Tickets go on sale Thursday, February 18, with early access for Film Society members beginning Thursday, February 11. Fore more information, visit www.filmlinc.org.
"Three Sisters" will be shown on March 9 at 3:30pm and March 11 at 6:30pm. Purchase tickets here.
