Join us for a cinematic escape to the City of Light! Discover Paris through the eyes of filmmakers who have used the city as a rich tapestry for their work.
Curated by Richard Peña, Film Studies professor at Columbia University and the former program director of Film Society of Lincoln Center, the series looks at the French capital through nearly 100 years of cinema.
Richard Peña: “Quite possibly, alongside Hollywood, no place more conjures up the majesty and mystery of the cinema more than Paris, which has ignited the artistic imaginations of generations of filmmakers. This wide-ranging sample of films characterizes Paris as not only a background, or a subject, but in a provocative way the co-auteur of these distinctive works.”
