Films on the Green: LE CAPITAN
June 24 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 pm
Films on the Green is back this summer (and back at Transmitter!) with an exciting lineup of French cinema AND a new and vibrant visual identity inspired by movie theaters and New York’s electrifying nightlife!
LE CAPITAN (Captain Blood) by André Hunebelle
With Jean Marais, Bourvil, Elsa Martinelli
France, 1616. King Louis XIII is 15 and his mother, Marie of Medicis, regent of the kingdom since the death of Henri IV, entrusts power to Concino Concini, a deceitful and ambitious man. After the assassination of his friend by Concini, noble swordsman Francois de Capestan, known as “Le Capitan,” goes to the young sovereign to warn him of the multiple betrayals that threaten the King’s Court.
Films on the Green is bringing French and Francophone cinema to the New York City area with our free screenings in nine different Manhattan and Brooklyn parks.
The festival’s 14th edition is centered on the theme From Page to Screen. Highlighting movies based on literature, this year’s lineup includes 12 features that you can enjoy even if you haven’t read the book!
