Indie tips for Bastille Day

user
The Champs-Elysees shakes with the pounding of hundreds of hooves as French soldiers march their horses past the Arc de Triomph. The strumming of guitars and pounding of drums flows through every street of Paris and the sky above the Eiffel Tower sparkles with red fireworks. Bastille Day commemorates the storming of Bastille prison and the paradigm shift in French society. Known as La Fête Nationale in France, the fourteenth of July is a symbol of the great revolution that forever changed g...

PARIS CINECITY

user
by Robert BerryFor all Paris residents who are also lovers of cinema – a Venn diagram with a broad intersection if ever there was one - watching Woody Allen’s recent Midnight in Paris must have provoked a series of uncanny recognitions: the steps at the top of Rue de la Montagne Ste-Genevieve without the overspill crowds of drinkers from the Bombardier pub, entrance to Polidor on Rue Monsieur le Prince, but with the tables arranged slightly differently. Allen’s film presents an impossib...

Diagonale 2011: Solo Retrospective Peter Tscherkassky

user
One of the highlights of this year’s festival is the solo retrospective on filmmaker Peter Tscherkassky, which introduces and honors his work.

Since the mid-80’s, the 52-year old Viennese has produced unique films drawing upon found footage of largely Hollywood productions. Frame for frame the filmmaker copies details and fragments from these sources in the dark room by using elaborate...

Nan Goldin: Scopophilia at the Louvre

user
Nan Goldin’s photography slide-show at the Louvre gives new life to iconic artwork seen alongside personal photos from the artist’s private collection. It was completely by chance that I stumbled across Nan Goldin’s photography slide-show installation at the Louvre, which is part of Patrice Chéreau’s (the Louvre’s 2010 guest of honour) theme of ‘Faces and Bodies’. Nestled in one corner of the museum entrance, a huge display of photographs leading to a sm...

Mariam Arthur en route to Cannes day 5

user
I awoke to the smell of fresh croissants baking in the oven. Xin and Uli were so kind to offer such a yummy breakfast! Soon, we were off for the day, taking the Metro to Montmartre, where artists like Pierre-Auguste Renoir used to live and create. Artists of today still flood the area. Unfortunately, the Metro goes straight through the hill of Montmartre, so the two closest stations are on either side, necessitating a steep walk. I have found that a steady pace works best for me, and with ti...

Mariam Arthur en route to Cannes day 4

user
Thankfully I slept in until around 8am. By 9am, my bags were packed and waiting in the guestroom for me to come back after sightseeing. I have to say that one of the coolest things about being in England is that all the words I know as British (boot, bonnet, lift, loo, queue, etc.) and that I hear spoken occasionally by British friends in the US or Cambodia, are used by everyone all the time. This is an obvious fact, but to HEAR it is fun. Tom and I went straight to the Underground to ma...
