Post-screening Q&A with director Lisa Azuelos
The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) is the place to see the best of French cinema with its weekly CinéSalon program. In celebration of Bastille Day, join us for the NY Premiere of Dalida.
From her birth in Cairo in 1933 to her first concert at the Olympia in Paris in 1956; from her marriage to Lucien Morisse, director of the newly emerging Europe 1 radio to the height of the disco scene; from her journey of discovery to India to the international success of Gigi L’Amoroso in 1974, Dalida the film, is a touching and tragic portrait of an emotionally complex woman who was born to be a star. An unconventional modern woman living through conventional times. Despite her tragic death by suicide in 1987 Dalida’s extraordinary presence and talent continue to live on.
