Breaking News: Canceling Camille Claudel Film TONIGHT,

BREAKING NEWS...

We are sorry for the last minute change but we have just been informed by the University that plummeting temperatures and high winds are going to make travel conditions hazardous tonight. Due to the icy forecast, we are canceling this evening's movie screening at Taplin Auditorium.

We will go ahead as planned with the screening next week on Monday, February 9; however, we will be showing the movie originally scheduled for this evening (Camille Claudel starring Gérard Depardieu and Isabelle Adjani).  This movie is more closely aligned with the piece of music that inspired Jake Heggie's Camille Claudel: Into the Fire that will be premiered on our series on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 by the Brentano String Quartet and mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato.  Once again, Caroline Harris, Associate Director for Education at the Princeton University Art Museum, will introduce the film next week and give insight into its historical accuracy.

We apologize for any inconvenience this change might cause.  Please stay safe.  We hope to see you next Monday.

Learn more about the life of sculptor Camille Claudel in a movie screenings shown in collaboration with the Princeton University Art Museum.  Bruno Nuytten's 1988 masterpiece Camille Claudel examines the artist's early career and stormy relationship with her mentor and lover, Auguste Rodin.  Caroline Harris, Associate Director for Education at the Princeton University Art Museum, will introduce both films and give insights into their historical accuracy. After the films, Dr. Harris will be available for questions and further discussion.
