Mississippi Mermaid (La Sirene Du Mississippi)

Starring Catherine Deneuve, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Michel Bouquet
By François Truffaut, 1969, Drama, Rated PG, 2h03, The Film Desk

Louis Mahé is a wealthy plantation owner living on the tropical island of Reunion. His mail-order bride, Julie Roussel, looks nothing like the photo she sent him, but enraptured by her radiance, he marries her anyway. When she disappears without a trace Louis vows to find her no matter what the costs.

Shown in French with English subtitles.

"Mississippi is a film noir shot in dazzling color, a Hitchcock movie with the soul of a Jean Renoir drama." - Boston Globe

Films on the Green is a free outdoor French film festival produced annually in New York City parks by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the City of New York Parks & Recreation. Initiated in 2008, Films on the Green has become a not-to-be-missed free event amid the vibrant New York City summer cultural offerings. Over the years, the festival has brought classic and contemporary French cinema to New Yorkers, each season’s films spanning different themes from environment or musicals to literary adaptations. This year's festival celebrates love "à la française".

Know Before You Go

Ice Skating RinksLasker Rink (Temporarily Closed)

Lasker Rink is closed due to a refrigeration malfunction. Parks is trying to repair the rink's concrete slab and valves to identify and fix the source of the leak, in the hope of reopening the rink to the public later this season. In the meantime, the Trump Organization along with NYC Parks will work with the community and other area rinks to try to accommodate hockey and skating groups who call Lasker Rink home. Refunds will also be issued to any organizations who reserved and paid for use of the rink during the time that it will be closed.
