“Les Cinémas de Caro/Jeunet”

A book about our work together, Caro and I, and our personal movies, has been published by Cernunnos/Dargaud… A sort of extension of the Halle St Pierre exhibit, with photos, drawings and other unpublished documents, including long interviews by Laurent Djan and prefaces by Claudie Ossard and Dominique Pinon.

“Delicatessen” alight

Caro/Jeunet exhibit in Lyon

A big round of applause to Dan Ohlman and Laurie Courbier, who took care of the set up.
