The International Festival of Films on Art - 39TH Edition from March 16 to 28, 2021

Dora Maar, entre ombre et lumière

France | 2019 | 52 min
Director: Marie-Ève De Grave


North American Premiere

Elusive, unconventional, on a quest for the absolute: painter and photographer Dora Maar left a unique and still largely under-appreciated body of work behind her. Maar’s extraordinary life saw her working alongside the greatest names in the Parisian art scene; she was also the lover of Picasso and the wife of Georges Bataille. Toppling conventions and shattering norms, Dora Maar breathed strength and character back into the image of 20th-century women. Hailed by critics, this film is an intimate portrayal that handles its subject with skill and sensitivity.
