Le Ciel est à Vous (1944)

November 18, 2015 @ 7:30 PM - 9:40 PM


UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S. present “Jean Grémillon: Le Ciel set à Vous.”

Le Ciel est à Vous (1944)
Directed by Jean Grémillon

A working-class auto mechanic and his wife become enrapt with an emergent vision and goal: that the wife should compete in an aviation contest and seek a women’s flying record. The sweeping, luminous drama was seemingly well-suited to the Vichy period, with its themes of escape and freedom, and skirted official sanction with its covert deployment of those themes in a story of personal triumph.
