Canapé: French Arts & Culture
July 15 at 11 pm
Since 1996, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and CUNY TV have produced together one of the few French programs to appear on American television: Canapé. Stylish and modern, Canapé is the only program entirely devoted to French cultural events in New York and the United States. This half-hour show includes film releases, book translations, exhibitions, festivals, ballets, concerts and theater productions. This episode highlights programs of the Haitian Cultural Exchange, visits with actress and singer Fatoumata Diwara, and features Award winning French writer and filmmaker Marie Monique Robin.
