French Cancan [16mm]
March 3, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 10:45 pm
Presented on 16mm Film!
Beautifully photographed, this comedy drama from Jean Renoir chronicles the revival of Paris’ most notorious dance as it tells the story of a theater producer who turns a humble washerwoman into a star at the Moulin Rouge. “The glorious final sequence, in which the cancan is finally unveiled to the rowdy audience, is some kind of masterpiece, perhaps the equal of anything Renoir ever achieved: wild, free, turbulent, exhilarating.” – The Guardian
