The Academy Screens "A Man and a Woman" and "The Monkey King" in 3D
BEVERLY HILLS, CA –The Academy celebrates the arts and sciences of movies with the following events in the month of October:
Presented in partnership with To Save and Project: The 10th MoMA International Festival of Film Preservation, the Academy will screen a new print of Oscar-winning French film "A Man and a Woman" from the Academy Film Archive. The print was created as part of the recently announced Film-to-Film project, an initiative to create and acquire new archival film prints for conservation, research and exhibition. In 1966, Anouk Aimée was propelled to international stardom and received an Academy Award nomination for her sensitive work in Claude Lelouch’s "A Man and a Woman." The poignant story of a young widow who has a romance with a race-car driver, played by Jean-Louis Trintignant, the film is noted for its visual imagery and Francis Lai’s memorable score.

The Academy is proud to participate in the first China Onscreen Biennial (COB), launched by the UCLA Confucius Institute. In scope and design, the COB is an unprecedented four-week bicoastal collaboration among American cultural organizations to promote U.S.-China dialogue through the art of film. The COB will look at both the present and past of Mainland Chinese cinema, bringing some of the best examples of contemporary Chinese filmmaking, as well as archival rarities and film restorations, to American audiences. As part of the Biennial program, the Academy will present the West Coast premiere of a Chinese animated classic, "The Monkey King: Uproar in Heaven." A beloved classic of Chinese animation, Wan Laiming and Tang Cheng’s 1960s animated feature returns to theaters after a painstaking and dazzling 3D makeover led by experts at Los Angeles-based Technicolor.
