The French Cultural Center presents an exceptional cine-concert featuring several Georges Melies films at the Cutler Majestic Theatre. One of the most renowned figures in cinema, French director Georges Melies is still an inspirational figure for great directors and was recently portrayed in Martin Scorsese's Hugo , winner of five Academy Awards earlier this year. As in the 1900s, this cine-concert will include riveting narration and piano accompaniment performed by Melies' great-granddaughter Marie-Helene Leherissey and Lawrence Leherissey, his great-great-grandson.
The original reels were located, restored, preserved and edited thanks to the work of the partner association, The Friends of Georges Melies. Paying homage to Melies, this show has been performed around the world and received the special Prize of the City of Vincennes 2010 during the International Cinema Meetings.
