The Caro-Jeunet Exhibit now to be at the Lyon Cinema and Miniatures Museum

The outstanding Caro-Jeunet exhibit at the Halle Saint Pierre has come to an end after 10 months. Many thanks to Martine Lusardi and her collaborators.
Now it will be opening to the public at the superb Cinema and Miniatures Museum in Lyon, at 60 rue Saint Jean, on October 13, a few days before the Lumière festival where Delicatessen will be screened three times.

Caro/Jeunet exhibit

As announced, there will be a Caro/Jeunet exhibit at the Halle St Pierre in Montmartre, beginning on September 7. Often cinema exhibits focus mainly on writing. But ours will be entirely visual, including all the emblematic items from our films, costumes, storyboards, research drawings, models, photos from the shooting, etc…

The Halle Saint Pierre was an obvious choice. An unpretentious museum of popular art, located just a few meters from where Nino Quincampoix chased Amélie in the gardens of the Sacré Cœur…

It was at Halle Saint Pierre that I discovered Jephan de Villiers, Ronan-Jim Sévellec, Charles Matton, Gilbert Peyre, where I admired the works of Giger, spiritual guide of my “Alien”… artists that I collect and who bridge the gap between “Singular” art and our films, which are no less, at least I hope… singular.

She acted mainly in the theatre and appeared in Patrice Leconte’s La Fille sur le pont.
Mireille, you’ve always been larger than life to me.

Two snails in Auvergne

The “Deux escargots” set off for the opening ceremony of the Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival. Here I am, on the stage with Romain Segaud, co-director and animator, and Julien Lecat, who took care of the editing and recorded the 35 actors. In the photo projected above us is the Clermont-Ferrand jury in 1983, under the leadership of President Henri Alekan, with Marie-Claude Treihou, Ted Benoit, Sophie Taticheff, Florence Giorgetti, a bookseller from Clermont, and yours truly, a few years younger…

It will be shown on all five screens before all films during the school holidays, from 17/12 to 2/1/2017. Yesterday was the premiere, shown before my favourite Marcel Carné film: Port of Shadows. Romain Segaud and I were there…


Then from January 18 to 24, it will be shown at all the sessions of the equally magnificent “Studio 28” in Montmartre, as part of Telerama week…
