    [In-Person + Virtual]

    For five decades, legendary French mime artist Marcel Marceau entertained and touched audiences around the globe and inspired entire generations of artists, from the famous Swiss clown Dimitri, who was part of his company, to David Bowie and Kate Bush. In THE ART OF SILENCE, the first documentary film about his life, we meet the complex, compassionate artist and family man behind the white-painted mask. The son of a kosher butcher in Strasbourg, as a teenager Marceau eluded capture by the Nazis through mime; he later joined the French Resistance and helped save hundreds of Jewish children. This revelatory film, filled with archival images and footage, and intimate testimonials by protégés and family members, traces Marceau’s long history, career, and artistic journey which was informed by his traumatic experiences during World War II.
