Invitation to Nicole Garcia

The gracefully slender and lively Nicole Garcia began performing in a series of theatrical and cinematic works following her Conservatory studies, collaborating with the biggest filmmakers: Tavernier, Sautet, Miller, Deville or Schoendoerffer. In the early 1990s, she stepped behind the camera to put her distinctive stamp of narrative lyricism on French cinema. After the success of Every Other Weekend, she filmed eight feature films, including The Adversary, based on Emmanuel Carrère’s work, and From the Land of the Moon, an adaptation of Milena Agus’s novel, both presented in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.
