UCSB Summer Cinema: ‘The Duchess of Langeais’

A screening of the scintillating French film is planned for July 29

UCSB Arts & Lectures Summer Cinema 2009 will present a screening of the scintillating French film The Duchess of Langeais at 7:30 p.m. July 29 in UCSB Campbell Hall.

Adapted from a Balzac novella and directed by French filmmaker Jacques Rivette, The Duchess of Langeais tells the story of Antoinette, a married coquette who frequents the most extravagant balls in 1820s Paris during The Restoration.

Flattered by the attentions of the handsome General de Montriveau, the alluring Antoinette orchestrates a calculating game of seduction. When Montriveau’s passion remains unfulfilled and he seeks his revenge Antoinette’s love awakens, but it may well be too late for the star-crossed lovers. The film stars actors Jeanne Balibar and Guillaume Depardieu.

Tickets are $6 for the general public and $5 for UCSB students, who must show a valid ID.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
