Bentley College Creative Writing Forum Presents The Widow of St. Pierre

November 6, 2001

WALTHAM, Mass.- The acclaimed film The Widow of St. Pierre will be presented along with a panel discussion on Tuesday November 13, 2001 at Bentley College. Part of Bentley College's Creative Writing Forum fall series, the event will be held at 6:30 p.m. in Wilder Pavilion at the Adamian Academic Center. The event is free and open to the public.


The Widow of St. Pierre, from the distinguished French director Patrice Leconte, stars Juliette Binoche and Daniel Auteuil. Set in the Canadian Maritime islands, it follows the redemption of a prisoner condemned to death for a senseless crime, and the response of the townspeople to the challenge of having to deal with something like real moral change, one that calls their conventional patterns of thought into question.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion representing three points of view. The panelists are: Bo Smith - head of the Film Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, and teacher at Rhode Island School of Design. He was awarded The Order of Arts and Letters by the French government in July 2000; Vilma Gregoropoulos - independent filmmaker and cinematographer. She has served as president of the Boston/New England section of National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians; and Nancy Esposito - prize-winning poet and member of the Bentley faculty.

Directions to Bentley College are available by calling 781-891-2100 or on the web at
