Join MAM and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) for a screening of the children’s film: The Painting. For mysterious reasons, a painter has left a work incomplete, causing conflict between the Toupins (Allduns), who are entirely painted, the Pafinis (Halfies), who lack a few colors, and the Reufs (Sketchies), who are only sketches. Toupins occupy the chateau, Pafinis are out in the gardens, and Reufs are treated as outcasts and hunted by the Toupins. Three friends, one of each class, go on a quest to find the artist so he can finish the piece and hopefully unite the people. The designs include homages to painters such as Marc Chagall, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, and Henri Matisse.
Film is French with English subtitles. Knowledge of French is not required to enjoy the program. Running time 1:16. Program followed by film-related art project.
Cosponsored by The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) in Montclair.
