September 11: Films on The Green at MIT [fr]
On Friday September 11th, the French Consulate in Boston invites you to attend a free screening of the acclaimed biopic Yves Saint-Laurent, directed by Jalil Lespert at the Dertouzos Amphitheater behind the Stata Building (32 Vassar Street, Cambridge MA).
Starring Pierre Niney (who won a César Award for Best Actor for this part), Guillaume Gallienne, Charlotte Le Bon & Laura Smet, YSL is a sumptuous drama exploring the turbulent personal and professional lives of the great French couturier.
Shot on location in Paris and Morocco, it also features original clothes from the Yves Saint Laurent haute couture collection archive.
