Every year, the Lumière Award recipient is given a carte blanche to compose a personal program, taking us through his or her cinematic journey. Jane Fonda wished to pay homage to her father, Henry Fonda, a major figure of Hollywood. Faithful to the greatest filmmakers, Fonda lent his slender figure to roles of both virile and gentle heroes throughout his fifty-year career. Often a bearer of humanist ideals, his characters reflected his own commitments, like the rebellious peasant in The Grapes of Wrath, an unforgettable performance.
