Join us for a special screening of the Academy Award–nominated documentary short “Colette,” followed by a conversation with director Anthony Giacchino, producer Alice Doyard, and the film’s subjects Colette Marin-Catherine and Lucie Fouble, moderated by Philippe Sands.

As a young girl, Colette Marin-Catherine fought the Nazis as a member of the French Resistance. Since 1945, she has refused to set foot in Germany. That changes when a young history student named Lucie Fouble enters her life. Lucie encourages her to revisit her past and travels with her to the concentration camp where the Nazis killed Colette’s brother.

Through this journey, Colette makes the ultimate discovery. That some wounds can only be healed if we find the courage to face our darkest and most haunting memories.

Watch the film and enjoy a behind-the-scenes conversation with the film’s team.
