La petite marchande d’allumettes - Holiday Screening
Curated by Adam Williams
Doors 7:00 PM / Start 7:30 PM @ The Mini - 1329 Main St.
Celebrate the holidays with friends at The Mini. In 1928, Jean Renoir collaborated with Jean Tedesco, managing director of the avant-garde Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier, and Charles Raleigh, an American film technician and former Biograph salesman, to produce this adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Little Match Girl. Despite meager means — friends were cast as actors, the costumes were made handmade, even the film was developed in a kitchen sink — Renoir’s film succeeds on purely imaginative zeal. Let this holiday classic be the tree topper with several Christmas-themed short films ornamenting the program. Egg nog and cookies provided. (90 min)
