LITTLE WHITE LIES, the generational ensemble dramatic comedy by Guillaume Canet, the writer-director of Tell No One, stars Academy Award® winners Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, The Dark Knight Rises) and Jean Dujardin (The Artist) along with François Cluzet (Tell No One, The Intouchables) and Gilles Lellouche (Point Blank, Mesrine), LITTLE WHITE LIES follows a close-knit group of friends whose bonds are tested and strengthened over a summer holiday.
Bringing together some of the top names from France’s current generation of actors, Mr. Canet weaves a joyous and heartfelt ensemble film out of the dilemmas of eight thirty and forty-something close friends as they vacation together in the summer beach house of uptight restaurateur Max (Mr. Cluzet). Starting out light and carefree, tensions begin to fill the air when Ludo is clinging to life following a motorcycle accident, and Max is grappling with unwanted affections from Vincent (The Piano Teacher's Benoit Magimel), whose married l

Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of French artist, Sylvie Vermandel. The opening reception will be held on Thursday night, September 20, 2012 from 6-8 pm
About the Artist
The oil paintings of French artist Sylvie Vermandel, which the artist refers to as ‘jewel paintings,’ are simultaneously representational and symbolic, reflective of the beautiful natural world that surrounds us as well as the spirituality and light that underscores everything we experience. Rather than using a palette, Vermandel mixes her colors directly on the canvas in thin layers, creating varying contrasts so that the observer is able to attain new perspectives on the painting. She adds an entirely new dimension of light and texture by incorporating such elements as crystals, gold leaf and silver sequins into each piece. What results is a harmony of color, tone and light that celebrates the artist’s great love for Mother Earth and is designed to bring out the positive side of life through sy

17 GIRLS (Cannes Film Festival International’s Critics Week selection), is Delphine and Muriel Coulin’s provocative debut feature focusing on a group of bored teenage girls who all make an irrevocable pact, a story inspired by a true headline-grabbing case which took place in Massachusetts.
When Camille (Louise Grinberg, The Class) accidentally becomes pregnant, she encourages her friends and fellow high-school classmates to follow suit, so they can raise their children collectively, an act at once unexpected and incomprehensible. It’s only a matter of time, before seventeen girls in the high school are pregnant and the town is thrown into a world of chaos. Set in the writer-directors’ small, seaside hometown of Lorient in Brittany, 17 GIRLS is a reflection on adolescence, body image, friendship and the perplexing realities of growing up.
Prior to 17 GIRLS, Delphine (also a novelist) and Muriel Coulin (a documentary director) directed five award-winning short films together. Louise Gr

Poetic and multi-layered, Bab'Aziz - The Prince Who Contemplated His Soul is the latest film from Tunisian writer and director Nacer Khemir. The story unfolds as the blind dervish Bab'Aziz (Parviz Shahinkhou) and his granddaughter Ishtar (Maryam Hamid) cross the desert in search of the great reunion of dervishes that takes place only once every thirty years. Side-by-side, the old man and the child wander for days across wide seas of sand with only their faith to guide them. To entertain his granddaughter, Bab'Aziz tells an ancient story of a prince who abdicated his kingdom in order to spend his days staring into a pool of water in spiritual contemplation. As the story of the prince unfolds, the pair encounter other travelers, each with stories, quests, and mysteries of his own. Nacer Khemir's enchanting film explores timeless themes of love, longing, and faith with powerful storytelling, breathtaking images and and haunting original music by composer Armand Amar.
