FILM: The Diving Bell and the Butterfly with an introduction by Julian Schnabel

Thursday, May 12 at 8:30 pm, Ring Auditorium

Julian Schnabel will introduce his celebrated feature based on the memoir of Jean-Dominique Bauby. At the age of 42, the editor of the French fashion magazine Elle is stricken with locked-in syndrome, which leaves him mentally alert but unable to speak or move. When his eyes are also compromised, doctors determine that one must be sewn shut. With blinks of the remaining eye, Bauby communicates his thoughts letter by letter to dictate his book. Schnabel’s inventive and unsentimental film vividly relates Bauby’s will to live, work, and connect.

In French with English subtitles.
