Chartres: Light reborn! Documentary screening & talk with Claire Babet, maître-verrier.

  • Monday, October 07, 2019
  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Alliance Française


Event in partnership with The American Friends of Chartres.

The fire that ravaged Notre Dame in April illustrates how the duty of preservation of majestic medieval buildings that sustained war and erosion should be a priority to guarantee that such wonderful patrimony be admired by the next generations.

We will be screening Chartres: Light Reborn!, a documentary by Anne Savalli (52 minutes - 2016) about renovation of the Chartres Cathedral, an icon of French Gothic architecture, followed by a talk with Claire Babet, maître-verrier in charge of renovating all the stained-glass windows of Chartres Cathedral.
