Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
Introduction by Lena Basse of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE
PORTRAIT DE LA JEUNE FILLE EN FEU
2019, Neon, 121 min, France, Dir: Céline Sciamma

Winner of the Queer Palm and the Best Screenwriting Award at Cannes, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE unfolds on a remote island off the coast of 18th-century Brittany. There, young painter Marianne is commissioned to create a portrait of reluctant bride-to-be Héloïse. She must do so in secret, however, posing as a lady’s companion because Héloïse refuses to sit for a portrait. As their hours together lengthen, Héloïse kindles a new flame in Marianne - one that time and circumstance will conspire to extinguish. This vividly shot and quietly turbulent film finds new possibilities in the age-old vein of forbidden love.
