RADIO SHOW: BEYOND THE SUBTITLES
Emmanuelle Devos, Violette
HOSTED BY STEPHEN SCHAEFER
Emmanuelle Devos transforms herself, subtly but spectacularly, into the postwar French author Violette Leduc. The writer's tempestuous life and times with icons like Jean Paul Sartre, Jean Genet and Simone de Beauvoir is brilliantly captured in Martin (Seraphine) Provost’s Violette. The film also stars Sandrine Kiberlain as de Beauvoir. Devos discusses Leduc’s era, her bisexuality, drinking, passions, and appearance. In French and English. Recorded at Red Bull Studios New York.
