As of March 27, the French Embassy in the United States will commemorate the centenary of the United States’ entry into World War I. These events organized by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, with the support of the French Mission of the Centenary, and under the sponsorship of the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission, will celebrate the extraordinary year 1917, a watershed date which led to a new political order, against the backdrop of major esthetic revolutions.
An inauguration evening is scheduled at Albertine, with a talk entitled Artistic Revolutions and the Great War, followed by two days of conference at Columbia University on March 30 and March 31. On April 6, the FIAF will screen the 1927 film Wings, with a live performance of the musical score.
