Director: Julian Schnabel

Writers: Ronald Harwood (screenplay), Jean-Dominique Bauby (books)

Cast: Mathieu Amalric, Emmanuella Seigner, Marie-Josée Croze etc.

Plot summary: Elle France editor Jean-Dominique Bauby, who, in 1995 at the age of 43, suffered a stroke that paralyzed his entire body, except his left eye. Using that eye to blink out his memoir, Bauby eloquently described the aspects of his interior world, from the psychological torment of being trapped inside his body to his imagined stories from lands he’d only visited in his mind.


The screening will take place in the TIGy Room on Friday, 16th January 6 p.m.
