Plot Sypnosis:

JEANNE MOREAU, FILMMAKER is a revelatory 2-disc Blu-ray set that includes new restorations of Moreau’s rarely-seen work as a director: LUMIÈRE (1976), THE ADOLESCENT (1979), and the documentary LILLIAN GISH (1984). LUMIÈRE: Four actress friends, Sarah, Laura, Julienne and Caroline, talk about their emotional and professional paths. They live intensely and deal with different concerns, both as women and as actresses. Their strong bond is embodied in the central figure of Sarah, the oldest and most famous of them… / THE ADOLESCENT: July 14th, 1939. Marie has just turned 12 and, as she does every year, she is about to go on holiday to her paternal grandmother’s house in central France. She is thrilled to see her beloved Grandma and the children of the village. Marie also meets the new country doctor and begins to experience a previously unknown feeling. The young girl gradually leaves childhood behind, while the shadow of war soon looms over her... / LILLIAN GISH: A tribute to Lillian Gish by Jeanne Moreau, where one actress pays homage to another. The American silent film star looks back on her career since her début in 1913, and evokes the filming conditions when she was a child, the first Hollywood blockbuster Birth of a Nation by D.W. Griffith and her passion for cinema, guided by an insatiable curiosity…
