For the Benefit of the Maria Callas Foundation - A celebratory film viewing - Maria by Callas.
In line with our theme, "the evolution of humanity from I to we", the Better World Fund will present:
A projection of the film "Maria by Callas" by Tom Volf,
Monday 22 May at 4.00 pm at the Carlton Cannes Hotel.
Maria Callas, who would have been 100 years old this year, symbolizes an artist who moved from the 'I' to the 'we'. She has used her voice and fame to bring societal issues to the attention of the public, and to engage other artists in their ability to act for a better world.
During the last five years, Tom Volf, a versatile French artist, created the film 'Maria by Callas, in her own words', which was released in France in 2017 and in over 45 countries in 2018.
This award-winning documentary became the most-watched French-produced film in the world in 2018, leading to the publication of two books and a third book on Callas' letters and memoirs.
Directed by Tom Volf
Voiced by Fanny Ardant
