Known as “the little girl of the Atlantic”, Florence Arthaud was above all a great sailor. Her exceptional record of achievement, unique in this male-dominated world, culminated in her victory in the Route du Rhum in 1990. Beyond these exploits, FLO tells the incredible story of a fiercely free woman who – after a road accident that almost cost her life – decided to reject her bourgeois milieu and the life that had been laid out for her, to live her dreams to the full.
“Flo”, the 131-minute biopic filmed by Géraldine Danon, which recounts the life of the sailor Florence Arthaud, will be presented in public preview on Friday 19 May, out of competition, as part of the Cinéma de la Plage of Cannes Film Festival, which offers outdoor screenings facing the sea, alternating between new releases and classics.
The MPC Paris teams, supervised by Lise Fischer, created 87 VFX shots on the film.
