Augusta Opening Night
Walk Augusta’s Opening Night Blue Carpet ahead of an exclusive screening of a classic French feature film, Belle de Jour.
The festival kicks off in Augusta with delicious canapés and a glass of Forester Estate wine served prior to the film screening at the town’s wonderfully welcoming Augusta Resource Centre.
Belle de Jour is an adaptation of the novel by Joseph Kessel. Screen icon, Catherin Deneuve, plays Séverigne, the glacially beautiful, sexually unfulfilled wife of a surgeon, whose blood runs icy with ennui until she takes a day-job in a brothel. There she meets a charismatic but sinister young gangster and ignites an obsession that will court peril.
