SEQUINS (Brodeuses)
Directed by Éléonore Faucher, 2004, 1h29, France
With Ariane Ascaride, Lola Naymark, Thomas Laroppe

After learning that she is pregnant at the tender age of seventeen, Claire (Naymark) finds refuge with Madame Mélikian (Ascaride), an embroiderer for haute couture designers who has buried herself in work following the death of her beloved son. Day by day, stitch by stitch, as Claire's belly grows rounder, the threads of embroidery will create a filial bond between them. In time, the grief-stricken mentor and her anxious apprentice will stop protecting themselves and start helping one another.

FILMS ON THE GREEN FESTIVAL

The 2019 Films on the Green lineup focuses on female directors in French and Francophone cinema through a selection of 13 movies. This 12th edition pays tribute to “Women Behind the Camera” in honor of Agnès Varda, feminist filmmaker and pioneer of the French New Wave, who passed away earlier this year.
