Presented in partnership with To Save and Project: The 10th MoMA International Festival of Film Preservation, the Academy will screen a new print of Oscar-winning French film “A Man and a Woman” from the Academy Film Archive. The print was created as part of the recently announced Film-to-Film project, an initiative to create and acquire new archival film prints for conservation, research and exhibition. In 1966, Anouk Aimée was propelled to international stardom and received an Academy Award nomination for her sensitive work in Claude Lelouch’s “A Man and a Woman.” The poignant story of a young widow who has a romance with a race-car driver, played by Jean-Louis Trintignant, the film is noted for its visual imagery and Francis Lai’s memorable score.
