My Journey Through French Cinema
Filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier ('Round Midnight) reflects on the history of French cinema that inspired his own craft.
"Tavernier explores in a highly personal documentary the French films from the '30s through to the '70s that inspired him to start out as a director, showcasing long-lost films that he discovered during the production process. Tavernier knows his native cinema inside and out, from giants like Renoir, Godard, and Melville (for whom he worked as an assistant) to now overlooked figures like Edmond T. Gréville and Guy Gilles. He rediscovers and reassesses filmmakers, films, and composers, taking us on a voyage through time and stories." (Alliance Française French Film Festival)
