This renowned European actress, whose career began at the age of 15 in Germany and continued in France, became a star thanks to films that have forever left their mark on the history of cinema, working with directors such as Alain Cavalier, Claude Sautet, Luchino Visconti, Orson Welles, and Otto Preminger.
The first exhibition at the French Cinémathèque dedicated to an actress showcases how Romy Schneider's career has contributed to writing a chapter in the history of cinema during her era, alongside renowned filmmakers from around the world. Her relentless pursuit of perfection undoubtedly contributed to her genius and grace. This exhibition offers a unique opportunity to give her a voice, attempting to bring her back to life through her roles as well as her writings and interviews.
The exhibition is structured both chronologically and thematically, aiming to showcase the actress's unconventional journey through 250 works, including photographs, production documents, a blend of objects (dresses, accessories, etc.), texts, interviews, personal items, and video excerpts.
As a bonus, visitors can explore a selection of photographs taken by the Traverso family from Cannes in the Romy Schneider space, an eternal myth in Cannes.
