A Woman's Work: Anne-Marie Miéville at BAMcinématek

The singular voice of director, screenwriter, editor, and actress Anne-Marie Miéville is felt in both her relentlessly probing solo works and heady collaborations with longtime partner Jean-Luc Godard. She returns time and again to key themes: the nature of creative and romantic relationships; solitude and loneliness; communication and the need to express oneself honestly. Suffused with literature, music, and dance, Miéville’s rich body of films and video are intoxicatingly intellectual works with a poignantly human center.

Paris Refashioned, 1957-1968

Paris Refashioned, 1957-1968 highlights one of the most groundbreaking time periods in fashion history. While many books and exhibitions about this era position London as the center of innovative, youth-oriented design, this limited perspective overlooks the significant role that Paris continued to play in the fashion industry. Paris Refashioned, 1957-1968 examines the combined influence of French haute couture, ready-to-wear, and popular culture during this era, with particular emphasis on how fashion was perceived and promoted by the American fashion press.

Vive L'Amérique: French School Children Welcome Their American Ally

When the Great War started in the summer of 1914, a school teacher in the Montmartre district of Paris asked his students, boys ages 8-13, to write essays and express in drawings how the war would affect their daily lives.

The children produced hundreds of drawings and essays reflecting on the changing nature of the war, political leaders, letters to their relatives on the front line, and daily food rationing. Despite these changes, the students still went to class, did their homework, and continued their lives as normally as possible.
