Light In The Attic Presents: “GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE”

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

As announced earlier this week, we’re co-presenting screenings across the USA of the great new film Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life (directed by Joann Sfar). Taking the best from La Vie en Rose and Amélie, renowned comic book artist Joann Sfar’s Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life is a completely original take on one of France’s greatest mavericks, the illustrious and infamous Jewish singer-songwriter, Serge Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino). Born Lucien Ginsburg to Russian-Jewish parents, Sfar follows him from his precocious childhood in Nazi-occupied Paris, to his beginnings as small time jazz musician and finally pop superstar. Along the way he romances many of the era’s most beautiful women, including Juliette Greco (Anna Mouglalis), Brigitte Bardot (Laetitia Casta) and Jane Birkin (Lucy Gordon). Employing a witty surrealistic style and a soundtrack that includes many of the musician’s greatest hits, Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life is a quintessential time capsule to ‘60’s Paris.

Below is a listing of the current run. More dates TBA…PLUS, we’ll be giving away tickets for special screenings in NYC and LA over the next week, so be sure to follow us on Twitter and “like” us on Facebook for your chance to win!
