Ciné-Concert - Georges Méliès
November 3, 2012
The French Cultural Center presents an exceptional ciné-concert featuring several Georges Méliès films at the Cutler Majestic Theatre. One of the most renowned figures in cinema, French director Georges Méliès 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 ciné-concert will include riveting narration and piano accompaniment performed by Méliès’ great-granddaughter Marie-Hélène Lehérissey and Lawrence Lehérissey, 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 Méliès. Paying homage to Méliès, this show has been performed around the world and received the special Prize of the City of Vincennes 2010 during the International Cinema Meetings.
