The American Friends of Chartres in partnership with the Cultural Center of the Embassy of France in New York and the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University cordially invite you to attend a screening of the premier of the film film Chartres, la lumière retrouvée (Chartres: Light Reborn!) (Anne Savalli, France, 2016, 54 minutes).
The partial restoration of Chartres Cathedral that took place from 2014 to 2016 focused on the nave, stained-glass windows, and first figures in the ambulatory. Chartres: La lumière retrouvée documents this meticulous process through observation and conversations with numerous restorers, archaeologists, scientists, and architects.
There will also be a round-table discussion.
The event will be held on April 18, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.
