Carte blanche to
She is Salvador Dali’s muse, disco singer, television presenter, model for Paco Rabanne, comedian, immortal wearing a bibi hat and accompanied by a panther on the album cover For Your Pleasure of Roxy Music, painter, Grosses Têtes resident, Amanda Lear is a familiar face of our cultural and audiovisual landscape for almost 40 years. But she remains elusive. Is this because we ignore her year of birth? Is this because she flits about a career to another with this ambiguous charm and this classy aplomb of a military child? This year the fifib hopes to unveil her cinephile face giving her a carte blanche with three films of her choice and that she will present, between showy past (The red shoes by Michael Powell), deadly glamor (Vertigo by Alfred Hitchcock) and intriguing conditional (the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, about the failed version of a science-fiction great classic in which Amanda Lear should have played in the 70’s). Hail to the Queen Lear!
