Please join the Embassy of France in the United States and the Carnegie Institution for Science for the U.S. premiere of the film L'Odyssée as part of the French-American Climate Talks on Ocean (FACT-O).

L'Odyssée (The Odyssey) follows Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the great French ocean-going adventurer, biologist, and filmmaker and stars Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, and Audrey Tautou.

Admission includes a private reception prior to the film with Jan Cousteau, wife of undersea explorer Philippe Cousteau (Jacques-Yves Cousteau's second son), who joined the Cousteau team on 20 expeditions over 12 years, and Philippe Cousteau, Jr, conservationist and grandson of Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Stay after the film for a panel discussion and audience Q&A with Jan Cousteau, Philippe Cousteau, and marine biologist Dr. Rebecca Albright.

Synopsis:
«Jacques-Yves Cousteau, his wife, and his two sons live in paradise, in a beautiful house looking out over the Mediterranean Sea. But Cousteau dreams only of adventure. Thanks to his invention, an autonomous diving suit that allows him to breathe underwater, he has discovered a new world. Henceforth, he will explore this world. And he's prepared to sacrifice everything to do so.

Highly influential and a fearlessly ambitious pioneer, innovator, filmmaker, researcher, and conservationist, Jacques-Yves Cousteau's aquatic adventure covers roughly thirty years of an inarguably rich in achievements life.»
