French Cinema programme: Celebration of the Arts

Le French May Ambassador and Movie Programme Curator: Karena Lam

Capturing the vitality of French cinema, Le French May cinema programme showcases a collection of French films. This year, I am very honoured to be the curator of the cinema programme. I have selected a few films for you, including “Seraphine de Senlis” directed by Martin Provost, “Les Amants de Montparnasse” directed by Jacques Becker, and “Renoir” directed by Gilles Bourdos. “Seraphine de Senlis” describes Seraphine’s experience in painting. Seraphine has never been formally trained in painting. Her only source of inspiration is the stained glass from the church.

Avant-garde artists like Modigliani introduce a creative stage, with art against tradition. However, Modigliani’s life was too short. In “Les Amants de Montparnasse”, Jacques Becker films Modigliani’s death from his point of view, and the effect is overwhelming.

The colours used in “Renoir” reflect the elements of Renoir’s paintings: light, water, freedom and flow. The film describes a woman dealing in between father and son; as well as painting and film.
