Join us for a special ciné-concert to commemorate the centennial of the United States' 1917 entry into World War I as part of the Minneapolis/St Paul International Film Festival.

A special screening of Wings, William Wellman’s epic masterpiece, paired with a live US premiere performance of the musical score featuring France’s Prima Vista Quartet musical score by Baudime Jam supplemented by Matthias Champon on trumpet and Cédric Barbier on percussion. One of the last great films of the silent era, Wings won the Academy Award for Best Picture at the first-ever Oscar Ceremony in 1927. Featuring spectacular stunts, classic melodrama, and iconic actress Clara Bow, Wings tells the story of mismatched lovers set against the backdrop of the Battle of Saint-Mihiel in the Meuse.

Prima Vista Quartet has become a benchmark in the world of cine-concerts. Variety’s Lisa Nesselson declared that the quartet offered “the best silent film accompaniment I’ve heard.”

The Ciné-Concert US tour will kick off in New York on April 6 followed by stops in Minneapolis, Chicago, and Saint Louis (MO).


This event is part of the French Embassy's yearlong nationwide centennial commemoration of the United States entrance into WWI, How 1917 Changed the World.

Presented by Minneapolis/St Paul Film Society and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy with support from The French Mission du centenaire de la Première Guerre mondiale, in charge of the World War One Centenary in France. This program is endorsed by The U.S. World War One Centennial Commission as a commemorative partner, which recognizes commitment to educating the public about World War One and honoring those who served.
