Isabelle Huppert's retrospective at FIAF

FIAF CinéSalon celebrates award-winning French screen and stage actress Isabelle Huppert with the screenings of ten notable films from her career. Among the greatest actresses of her generation, Isabelle Huppert has starred in more than 120 films, garnering a record 16 César nominations and an Academy Award for Best Actress. Throughout her career, Huppert has audaciously pursued morally complex roles, fearlessly embracing the fragility and ferocity of human nature.

From 1977’s The Lacemaker, which launched Huppert’s international reputation, to 2017’s Mrs. Hyde, the series brings together ten key films, marking highlights from Huppert’s career. It showcases partnerships with long-time collaborators such as Claude Chabrol (The Ceremony) and Michael Haneke (The Piano Teacher), as well as younger filmmakers such as Mia Hansen-Løve (Things to Come) and Ursula Meier (Home).

In conjunction with this series, on Sunday, March 24, FIAF will present “A Special Evening with Isabelle Huppert”, a conversation with the actress preceded by a screening of I Love Isabelle Huppert (Stéphane Bergouhnioux and Jean-Marie Nizan, 2017).
