An Evening With...

March 9 to March 16

Vincent Macaigne in Person

A hyperproductive creative whirlwind, Vincent Macaigne straddles the worlds of theater in cinema, writing and directing for stage and screen and providing a fierce, urgent, violent presence as an actor on stage and in the film work of others. At Metrograph, New York can meet this 39-year-old cult phenomenon, the volcanic Vincent, who has made waves at Cannes and the Avignon Theater Festival alike, having been dubbed “the face of a fresh new wave in French cinema” (The Observer) for providing vivid dramatic expressions of a generation who have known nothing but underemployment, bad news, and economic stagnancy, yet remain devout in their faith in love, in works “opposing the violence of the world to the violence of an art in which speech is directly addressed.” (Festival d’Avignon)
