Already established as a stage actor, Jeanne Moreau had her film career break with Louis Malle's suspenseful first feature, Lift to the Scaffold (1958). In François Truffaut's Jules et Jim (1961) Moreau redefined femininity as carefree and unconventional leading character Catherine, and became a style icon for the French New Wave.
The film also made her an international star. Her mesmerising screen presence led her to work with other renowned directors such as Michelangelo Antonioni (La Notte, 1961), Orson Welles (The Trial, 1962), Luis Bunuel (Diary of a Chambermaid, 1963) and Tony Richardson (Mademoiselle, 1966). In this introductory lecture, we will look at excerpts from some of her major performances, often praised for blending intelligence, audacity and aloof sensuality. This will also open a discussion on the art of the actor. Lecture: The Art of Jeanne Moreau (Martine Pierquin) - 1.30pm Film: Lift to the Scaffold (Louis Malle) - 2.45pm
