6:30 PM to 8:00 PM: A subtle and sober biopic, Bruno Dumont’s examination of the sculptor and Rodin muse of the title marks the director’s first collaboration with a major star: Juliette Binoche. Camille Claudel 1915 traces, during the year that the artist turned 51, just three days of her grim life at the Montdevergues mental asylum near Avignon, where she had been committed by her family. Binoche potently conveys Claudel’s abject state. In a bold move, Dumont cast actual asylum patients as the other residents of Montdevergues, their own suffering further underscoring Claudel’s helplessness and anguish. Dumont has fashioned an exemplary spiritual lesson of his own, one that highlights the grace of the forsaken. Film is in French with English subtitlesFree and open to the publicInformation: cooker@fau.edu
