Ahead In Paris


Rental Format(s): 16mm

In France, Louis Lumière invented the motion picture and he developed the first motion picture projector. AHEAD IN PARIS combines the subjects of Lumière - city streets and everyday life - with the technique of Georges Melies. Other films have tried the same sort of thing - by Emile Cohl, Feuillade et al. - but not for some time. This is Paris, 1970, including footage shot at Nanterre, home of much student rebellion, beginning and ending in an area rebuilt from the hospital where Jean Cocteau wrote Opium.
