James Franco / Jaeger-LeCoultre

Jaeger-LeCoultre welcomes James Franco, honoured in 2014 with the Glory to the Filmmaker award

James Franco came back to Venice to present his latest movie In Dubious Battle in which he starred alongside Austin Stowell, Ashley Greene and Selena Gomez. In the movie, taking place in the California apple country, nine hundred migratory workers rise up against the landowners after getting paid a fraction of the wages they were promised.

On Saturday, September 3rd 2016, James Franco was welcomed by Jaeger-LeCoultre Communication Executive Director, Laurent Vinay, in the lounge of the Maison.

Since 2005, Jaeger-LeCoultre enjoys close associations with the Venice International Film Festival and pays tribute to filmmakers’ creative ingenuity by conferring the Glory to the Filmmaker Award to a personality “who has brought great innovation to contemporary cinema” (Alberto Barbera).
