En Plein Dans L'œil - A Film-Concert Live

As a part of Kids Trail, the film-concert En plein dans l'œil (Right in The Eye), a creation by Jean-François Alcoléa based on Georges Méliès cinematographic works, will be on tour this fall in the US from October 18 to November 16.

Presenting 12 films by French director Georges Méliès (1861-1938), the show presents a modern rendition of the poetic and playful universe of Georges Méliès by aptly serving both its images and its narrative.

Performances and workshops will be organized in Goral Gables (FL), Dallas (TX), Atlanta (GA) (as a part of France Atlanta Festival), Huntsville (TX), New York (NY) and Bethesda (MD).
