Author and artist Paulette Frankl reads from her book Marcel & Me: A Memoir of Love, Lust, and Illusion (Lightning Rod Publications) at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 12, at the Jean Cocteau Cinema, 418 Montezuma Ave., followed by a screening of Roger Vadim’s 1968 cult classic Barbarella, starring Jane Fonda. Frankl began a relationship with celebrated mime Marcel Marceau in the early 1970s, and her book is a provocative, sexually charged look at the personality behind the face-paint. Why is it matched with Barbarella? Marceau, in a rare speaking part, plays the bearded Professor Ping in the space adventure that goes Gravity one better. Tickets are $10, $8 students and seniors; call 505-466-5528 or see www.jeancocteaucinema.com.
