DARK UNDERTONES: ‘La Belle et La Bete’ uses haunting and poetic imagery in the telling of this classic tale

Film meets fashion on May 17 when the SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion and Film airs La Belle et La Bete in conjunction with the exhibition Pierre Cardin: Pursuit of the Future. The black and white ‘40s surrealist film is a take on the classic “Beauty and the Beast” fairy tale directed by Jean Cocteau — pretty much a trend setter for remakes of this classic. Cardin helped design costumes and masks for the film early in his 70-year (zoinks!) career. Cardin’s designs often focus on futuristic concepts full of geometric shapes and unisex garmentry. The museum galleries will remain open while the film is screened — guests are encouraged to enjoy the exhibit beforehand. Seats are limited.

Free-$10. Thurs., May 17. 6-8 p.m. SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion and Film, 1600 Peachtree St. scadfash.org/events/la-belle-et-la-bete. 404-253-3132.
