You’re invited to the opening night of the second edition of the Princeton French Film Festival for the exceptional screening of Laetitia Colombani’s internationally-acclaimed The Braid (French: La Tresse) (2023).

Adapted from her own powerful international best-selling novel read by more than 5 million people, Laetitia Colombani‘s feature is a soul-stirring tale of the intertwined fates of three courageous women, spanning cultures, backgrounds, and borders. Three women, three continents, three destinies… They’ve never met but are bound by a thread that is intimate and quite unique. Cast includes Kim Raver of Grey’s Anatomy.

Free and open to everyone upon registration, this screening will take place on Friday, April 12, 2024 at 7:30 PM (doors open at 7:15 PM) in Princeton University’s McCosh Hall 10 in its original languages (English, Hindi, Italian) with English subtitles.

If you’re interested in the book this movie was adapted from, you can also attend a free and casual conversation in English at the Princeton Public Library on Tueday, April 9, 2024 starting at 7:00 PM – even if you haven’t read the book. Free and open to everyone upon registration. Free food and drinks will be served to attendees.
