An angelically beautiful Catherine Deneuve was launched to stardom by this dazzling musical heart-tugger from Jacques Demy. She plays an umbrella shop owner's delicate daughter, glowing with first love for a handsome garage mechanic, played by Nino Castelnuovo. When the boy is shipped off to fight in Algeria, the two lovers must grow up quickly. Exquisitely designed in a kaleidoscope of colors, and told entirely through the lilting songs of the great composer Michel Legrand, "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" is one of the most revered and unorthodox movie musicals of all time.

A coffee and pastry reception will precede the film screening, beginning at 2 p.m.

To avoid lines at the door, patrons are encouraged to buy a festival pass online. Festival passes to all films and events are for $40.
