Image for CineMasters: Céline Sciamma

Céline Sciamma established herself as a major director with her debut film Water Lilies. Her ability to portray the complexities of young female experience, and to do so with clarity and vision, was immediately striking.

Her first three films form a loose trilogy on the lives of young women in contemporary France, while her newest film Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a bold step into the past. We are delighted to be showing all four of her features to date in this season, accompanied by several special introductions.
