Series at FIAF: Actor's Choice, Lambert Wilson & Yves Montand

The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York’s premiere French cultural center, will welcome actor and singer Lambert Wilson, who will introduce a New York Premiere Special Screening of Corporate, directed by Nicolas Silhol.

The screening will be followed by FIAF’s new CinéSalon series Actor’s Choice: Lambert Wilson & Yves Montand, running Tuesdays, November 14 through December 19 at 4 and 7:30pm. Actor Lambert Wilson—whose own career also brought him to the US with roles in The Matrix and Flawless—presents a special series in which Wilson has selected his favorite works from Yves Montand’s filmography as well as his own in a meditation on the nature of acting and the legacies of stardom.

In the spirit of the French ciné-clubs and literary salons, CinéSalon pairs an engaging French film with a social post-screening wine & beer reception.

Both events are presented in conjunction with the US Premiere concert performance of Lambert Wilson Sings Yves Montand on Tuesday, November 7 at 7:30pm in FIAF’s Florence Gould Hall.

Curated by Lambert Wilson and Delphine Selles-Alvarez.
