Jean Renoir's

1926 silent film classic  


(Jean Renoir, 1926, France, 150 min)

Live music accompaniment by Elsie Parker & The Poor People of Paris

NANA is an adaptation for the classic novel by Emile Zola (the author's daughter, Denise Leblond-Zola, was even hired to write the titles). The film stars Renoir's wife, Catherine Hessling, as the title character, a talentless and vain stage actress who becomes the kept woman of the hopelessly infatuated and married Count Muffat.  The film features a pair of grand set-pieces, at a horse race and an open-air ball. Introduction and post film discussion by Lionel Cuillé, the Jane and Bruce Robert professor of French and Francophone Studies at Webster University.  In French with English subtitles.
