James Ivory at Films on the Green

This year, we celebrate the tenth anniversary of Films on the Green. To mark the occasion, ten guest curators with a special connection to film, New York, and French culture collaborated with the French Embassy Film Department to put together a unique series of French movies to screen in parks across the city.

On Thursday, September 7, hundreds of students and New Yorkers gathered at Columbia University, in front of Low Library, to watch the French classic, The Wild Child. For this last screening of the season —a back-to-school event organized in partnership with the Columbia Maison Française— director James Ivory joined us to introduce the film, which he had selected for the festival.

Mathieu Fournet, Head of the Film & TV Department at the French Embassy in the U.S. remembers an excellent summer of Films on the Green:

The screening of The Wild Child (L’enfant sauvage) directed by François Truffaut (1970) took place in Columbia University as part of Films on The Green.
