Tickets aren't available yet, but I'll update as soon as they are.
Synopsis: S?raphine vividly recounts the tragic story of French na?ve painter S?raphine de Senlis (renowned French actress Yolande Moreau), a humble servant who becomes a gifted, self-taught painter whose brilliantly colorful canvases adorn some of the most famous galleries in the world. German art critic and collector Wilhelm Uhde (Ulrich Tukur) discovers her paintings while she is working for him as a maid in Senlis near Paris in the early part of the 20th century. A poignant and unexpected relationship develops between the avant-garde art dealer and the visionary cleaning lady. Director/co-writer Martin Provost's fictionalized portrait of this forgotten painter is a testament to creativity and the resilience of one woman's spirit.http://i463.photobucket.com/albums/qq360/flosofr/seraphine.jpg
