Join us for a special ciné-concert to commemorate the centennial of the United States' April 6, 1917 entry into World War I.

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.

This screening will kick off a U.S. tour with stops in Minneapolis, Chicago, Washington D.C., and Saint Louis.

Presented by FIAF 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.
