Seattles first-ever tribute to multiple award winning French writer-director Louis Malle

Museum of History and Industry, McEachern Auditorium

Thursdays, April 6 - June 8, 7:30 p.m.


We proudly present Seattles first-ever tribute to multiple awardwinning French writer-director Louis Malle (1932 - 1995). Along with Franois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard, Malle was a French New Wave pioneer whose elegant style and sophisticated intelligence shaped an array of entertaining fi lms. He made Jeanne Moreau a star in the thrilling film noir Elevator to the Gallows and furthered her rise in The Lovers, in which she abandons her boringly proper life for a journey of self-discovery.
