The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York's premiere French cultural center, celebrates the spring with a new CinémaTuesdays series exploring Paris, the City of Light.
How does one capture the essence of a city, recreate its soul, the beatings of its heart, and describe its mutations while celebrating what makes it timeless and unique among all of the other cities of the world? These questions continue to guide us through the evolving history of thousands of films that feature Paris as either subject or backdrop. By summoning the first films of young filmmakers alongside works by recognized directors and blending the genres of fiction, documentary and animation, FIAF shares with you the eternal city of light.
The Paris au présent series is co-curated by Marie Losier, Laurence Herzberg of The Forum Des Images and the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
