Bernadette Lafont, the iconic French actress considered to be a major face of New Wave cinema, will read a selection of letters in French written by the celebrated film director François Truffaut to actors, friends, and other collaborators.

Truffaut’s letters reveal unknown sides of his personality and offer an insider’s look at cinema and French cultural life in the ‘60s.

Lafont, who will also share unpublished letters sent to her by Truffaut, will take audiences beyond the great man’s films.
