Free outdoor screening of Sequins (Brodeuses) on Friday July 19 at Riverside Park, Pier I. #FilmsOnTheGreen
After learning that she is pregnant at the tender age of seventeen, Claire finds refuge with Madame Mélikian, an embroiderer for haute couture designers who has buried herself in work following the death of her beloved son. Day by day, stitch by stitch, as Claire's belly grows rounder, the threads of embroidery will create a filial bond between them. In time, the grief-stricken mentor and her anxious apprentice will stop protecting themselves and start helping one another. In French with English subtitles.
