Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the release of MARGUERITE, writer-director Xavier Giannoli’s satirical tragicomedy set in France in the 1920s, starring Catherine Frot (The Dinner Game, Family Resemblances) as Marguerite Dumont, an eccentric and exceedingly wealthy would-be Opera diva. Nominated for 11 César Awards including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actress, the film was selected for the Venice and Telluride Fim Festivald, and is scheduled to open in New York at The Paris Theater and the Angelika Film Center on Friday, March 11 with a national roll-out to follow.
Not far outside Paris, at the beginning of the Roaring 20s, Marguerite lives in a sumptuous mansion, spending much of her time singing famous opera arias dressed in elaborate theatrical costumes. Marguerite sings whole-heartedly, bearing her soul, but is also terribly, and comically, out of tune. When a young, provocative journalist writes a rave review of her latest private recital, Marguerite’s delusion that s

Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the release of STANDING TALL, writer-director Emmanuelle Bercot’s urgent and sympathetic drama about a teenage delinquent and the tireless efforts of the juvenile judge (Catherine Deneuve,) and counselor (Benoit Magimel) assigned to his case, to save him. The Opening Night selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, STANDING TALL won 2 César Awards for Best Newcomer (Rod Paradot) and Best Supporting Actor (Benoit Magimel) and will open in New York on Friday, April 1 at Lincoln Plaza Cinema with a national roll out to follow.
Sixteen-year-old Malony (Rod Paradot) is surrounded by adults both callous and supportive. On the latter side is a warm-hearted court judge Florence Blaque (Catherine Deneuve) and a devoted social worker Yann (Benoît Magimel, The Piano Teacher); on the other side stand most other authority figures. Clearly a victim of circumstances and poor parenting from his basket case of a mother (Sara Forestier, The Names of Love), he’s als

New York, New York – Laurence de Valmy is pleased to announce an exhibition “Colors & reflections” of recent paintings at the French restaurant O Cabanon in Chelsea, NY. The exhibition will open on April 6 and will remain on view through June 6, 2016.
Laurence de Valmy is a French painter who fell in love with the American movements of Contemporary Realism and Photorealism, to the point of becoming a realist painter herself. She believes that what we see influences our mood. Therefore she chooses to paint colorful and bright paintings to create happy and peaceful moments in time.
For this exhibition, curated by Emilie Boix, Manager at OCabanon, Laurence will present a body of work around the study of the light and its impact on colors and reflections. “It’s fascinating to notice how light transforms the colors or how reflections are playful. I’m very pleased of this collaboration with the team of OCabanon. The atmosphere of the restaurant is welcoming and is all about spending a good

Ajkun Ballet Theatre's Carmen Suite - Face to Face Series....An addictive fire of passion, love triangle and tragedy.
on Saturday, April 16 and Saturday, April 23, 2016 at 6:30pm
at Alvin Ailey Joan Weill Center for Dance Studios
Chiara Ajkun's internationally acclaimed choreography performed as part of our Face to Face series, which affords the audience a close-up to the performers in the intimacy of our studios. Unmatched for passion, jealousy, and a love triangle turned into crime of passion, Carmen is set to Bizet’s stirring music, blazed by the dramatic voice of “La Divina” Maria Callas, and groundbreaking in its realism.
Chiara Ajkun’s choreography portrays Carmen as a leader of change for women’s free choices. Set apart by her taunting beauty, Carmen lays eyes on Don Josè. Explosive sparks follow, and the ultimate romance of love and passion keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.
“[Ajkun’s] Carmen is superb…an outsta
