Film Screening: Le Scaphandre et le Papillon
201 E Market St, Charlottesville, VA, 22903
Based on Jean-Dominique Bauby's memoir "Le Scaphandre et le Papillon," The Diving Bell and the Butterfly depicts the author's life after suffering a massive stroke and, as a result, being diagnosed with "locked-in syndrome," a condition that ultimately left him unable to communicate except for blinking with his left eye. Released in 2007, this moving tale has won awards at the Cannes Film Festival, the Golden Globes, and the BAFTAs.
