FFF17 The Dancer7th March, 2017
French singer/actress Soko (Augustine) and ingénue-of-the-moment Lily-Rose Depp lead a star-studded cast in Stéphanie Di Giusto’s spectacularly mounted screen biography, inspired by the true story of two rival pioneers of modern dance and theatrical performance in late 19th-century Paris.
With her revolutionary “Serpentine” dance, Loïe Fuller was the toast of the Belle Époque cabarets. But it was her meeting with Isadora Duncan, an ambitious and beautiful young prodigy, that threatened her stature, her confidence and her sanity. Screening in the Alliance Française French Film Festival 2017.
