Americans in Paris Film Series: “Paris Was a Woman”

7:00 – 8:30 pm

Join the Georgia Museum of Art for films discussed by scholars, filmmakers and students. Each film will include a 15-minute introduction by a guest speaker and short conversations about the film following the screening.

Female artists, writers, photographers, designers and adventurers settled in Paris between the wars. They embraced France and cherished a way of life quite different than the one they left behind. This documentary presents archival footage, music, paintings, literature, and interviews with folks who were there, including Berenice Abbott, Djuna Barnes, Sylvia Beach, Adrienne Monnier, Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, Colette, Janet Flanner, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and James Joyce. (1996, NR, 75 min.)

Sponsored by the University of Georgia Parents Leadership Council.
