A free virtual conversation with Antonin Baudry and Anousheh Ansari on Confinement: From Underwater To Outer Space, moderated by Leah Pisar, Chair of the Aladdin Project, presented by the French Institute Alliance Française in New York, will be held live on Zoom and Facebook, starting at 12:00pm (EDT), Friday, June 12.

Antonin Baudry, aka Abel Lanzac, is the director/screenwriter of the nuclear submarine thriller The Wolf's Call (Le Chant Du Loup), starring François Civil with Omar Sy, Mathieu Kassovitz, Reda Kateb, Jean-Yves Berteloot, Damien Bonnard, Pierre Cevaer, and Paula Beer, shot by Pierre Cottereau. Antonin co-wrote the screenplay for Bertrand Tavernier’s The French Minister (Quai D’Orsay) which was based on his autobiographic graphic novel about his adventures as a speech writer in the French Ministry.

Anousheh Ansari is a CEO of the XPRIZE Foundation and was the first female space tourist, which included a visit to the International Space Station.
