When money and power is involved, society tends to ignore or to encourage faults—or so is the case of Marguerite. In the 1920s, she invites music lovers from all over to her castle to share in her passion and life’s work: music. While she gives it her all, she still sings completely and hopelessly out of tune. Having been secluded and deluded, her musical performance has been encouraged, and this crowd of hypocrites showers her with praise. When a journalist fans this ruse in a rave review of her home debut, Marguerite’s delusions increase.


"Francofonia"
Directed by Alexander Sokurov
Saturday, June 25th, 7:00 pm

The fragility of a nation’s culture during wartime has been put to test of late in Syria, Afghanistan, Mali and Iraq. In this brilliant essay film director Alexander Sokurov (Russian Ark), uses the example of the Louvre Museum as a way to investigate how that institution preserved artworks—just one aspect of civilization—during times of crisis.
