KT Wong Foundation and the screening of “La Divine” (1934) at the Cinematheque Francaise

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The eve before Mens fashion week in Paris I spent a delightful evening at the Cinematheque Francaise to celebrate the remastered silent film La Divine and the 50 year relationship between France and China. The evening was presented by Frederic Mitterrand and the Godmother of the event was Madame Zhang, pictured below in the black and floral dress with Nora Wang who works for KT Wong Fondation in China. My friend Nadja Romain invited me to the projection and she is pictured below with Herve Mikaleloff, he curated the Miss Dior exhibition and is an art advisor and curator.The great looking group are friends of the KT Wong Foundation. Unfortunately I do not have an image of Linda Wong Davies, the founder of the KT Wong Foundation. The film allows us to experience the beginning of Chinese cinema and marks the first collaboration with  la Cin
