I have to admit that among the rest of our cultural proposals for the week, the most intriguing has a french aura in it. In case you were wondering, I am going to have to ask you: Parlez-vous Français ?
14TH FESTIVAL OF FRENCH CINEMA
Between April 4th and April 14th, the French Institute organizes a week totally dedicated to francophone films. Older movies and avant premieres, many guests and other events, will take place this week at cultural spots in the city. For more info click here.
BOOKS BAZAAR AT THE BENAKI MUSEUM
The Benaki Museum is organizing a Book Bazaar in the Pireos Annexe, starting today and ending this Sunday, April 7th. It will include 230 titles, all published by the museum, with a 50-70% discount. Classical Greece, Byzantine Culture, Folklore, Modern Greek Painting and European Art, are some of the books’ subjects. Visit the museum for a journey into wisdom.
ROBERT WILSON, VIDEO PORTRAITS
We have talked about Robert Wilson’s many artistic skills before. His VOOM series in particular, consists of 43 videos which he conceived, designed and directed between 2004 and 2009. Photography, film, literature and sound are gathered together to produce a unique form of art. The Onassis Cultural Center will be hosting the artist’s work in an exhibition that starts this Friday, April 5th. The videos star famous actors, artists and authors, including Johnny Depp, Salam Hayek, Brad Pitt and Winona Ryder. An excellent exhibition that you should not miss!
