Celebrating Serge Gainsbourg with Jane Birkin, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rebecca Marder, and Comédie-Française

Three decades after his death, French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg remains a complex and vivid figure within music and culture.

Join FIAF on Thursday, June 10 at 6:30pm ET for a special LIVE conversation with three celebrated artists who deeply know Gainsbourg as an artist and a man: the incomparable Jane Birkin, Gainsbourg’s former partner; accomplished actor/musician Charlotte Gainsbourg, Birkin and Gainsbourg’s daughter; and Comédie-Française’s Rebecca Marder, a performer in La Comédie-Française chante Gainsbourg. Together, they will look back at Serge Gainsbourg’s genius creations and discuss his artistic heritage. Michael Cooper, Deputy Culture Editor at The New York Times, will moderate the conversation.

Additionally, FIAF brings US audiences exclusive virtual access to La Comédie-Française chante Gainsbourg from Thursday, June 10–Wednesday, June 30. The film, a theatrical concert adapted from Stéphane Varupenne and Sébastien Pouderoux’s show Les Serge (Gainsbourg Point Barre), pays tribute to the genius of the provocative artist. Actors from the renowned troupe embark on a search for the elusive man behind the music, and explore the lasting influence of the beloved, though sometimes polarizing composer and musician.
