Charlie Chaplin's granddaughter to attend Abu Dhabi Film Festival
Carmen Chaplin coming to the UAE this October
From October 23rd to November 1, the eighth edition of the Abu Dhabi Film Festival will take place at Emirates Palace, and will see Carmen Chaplin attend as a friend of the Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre.
Together, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Chaplin's granddaughter will be debuting a short film, A Time For Everything, alongside her mother and her daughter Uma. The film will celebrate the memory of Charlie Chaplin and his specially-crafted Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox watch –with the film set to illustrate the idea of time and inheritance.
"I love antique watches and the idea that they have a past and a story to tell. "I am intrigued by the fact that they have been ticking steadily for more than a century. My grandfather's watch particularly moves me, because he gave it to my father, Michael Chaplin, his son, when he turned 14. Then my dad gave it to my mum as proof of their love on their wedding day. It was a real good-luck charm because they have been in love now for 45 years." stated Carmen.
