Retrospective: Catherine Breillat

“The pleasures of Ms. Breillat’s work are its commitment and seriousness and its raw, sometimes very funny perversity: she lets everything hang out, without apologies.”—New York Times

We are honored to welcome novelist and filmmaker Catherine Breillat to the Wexner Center in one of the signature series of our 25th Anniversary Season. One of France’s most significant and controversial contemporary artists (and a figure familiar to Wexner Center cinephiles), Breillat is known for her provocative portrayals of sexuality and gender issues in films such as Fat Girl and Romance, which have screened here in the past. Breillat joins us on September 25 to introduce our screening of Romance, and on September 26 to introduce and discuss her new film, Abuse of Weakness, starring Isabelle Huppert.

Special thanks to Marcus Hu, of Strand Releasing, for his assistance with this series, and to Unifrance for their generous support of this retrospective.
