The Alliance Française Classic Film Festival is returning for its fourth season in 2018 to pay tribute to Jeanne Moreau. The festival will screen from Thursday, October 18 until Sunday, October 21 at the WA Maritime Museum.
With the sad passing of Jeanne Moreau, aged 89, last year, the Festival is paying tribute to the actress of La Nouvelle Vague. The 2018 season will present six of her most renowned films from 1958 to 1991. Moving from stage to cinema in the 50s, Moreau achieved national recognition with starring roles in controversial and landmark films. She performed with many of the leading art-house directors of the time including Roger Vadim, Michelangelo Antonioni, Luis Buñuel, François Truffaut and Louis Malle.
Famed for her role in François Truffaut’s New Wave classic Jules and Jim, her international career was recognised with numerous Awards such as César for Best Actress and honorary César, an honorary Golden Lion, a BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Actress and an honorary Golden Bear at Berlin.
