Virtual Theatrical Concert

La Comédie-Française chante Gainsbourg

Three decades after his death, French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg remains a complex and vivid figure within music and culture.

FIAF brings US audiences exclusive virtual access to La Comédie-Française chante Gainsbourg from Thursday, June 10–Wednesday, June 30. The film, a theatrical concert adapted from Stéphane Varupenne and Sébastien Pouderoux’s show Les Serge (Gainsbourg Point Barre), pays tribute to the genius of the provocative artist. Actors from the renowned troupe embark on a search for the elusive man behind the music, and explore the lasting influence of the beloved, though sometimes polarizing composer and musician.
