PREMIÈRE NORD-AMÉRICAINE / NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE
Director Patrick Fabre
Producer Mon Voisin Productions
Scriptwriter Patrick Fabre
Who better than Patrick Fabre, presenter at the Cannes Film Festival’s red-carpet and artistic director of France’s Saint-Jean-De-Luz International Film Festival, to tell the behind-the-scenes story of French cinema? Across a pared down and elegant staging, this documentary gathers the touching testimonies of established cinematographers who share their memories and anecdotes linked to their first major reward. Also questioned are the distributors, producers and newcomers taking their very first steps in this at times unforgiving universe. Following UN CÉSAR NOMMÉ ESPOIR and CINÉMA AU FÉMININ PLURI(ELLES), both previously shown at CINEMANIA, CÉSAR PREMIÈRE is a fascinating documentary not to be missed while the Academy of French Cinema Césars undergoes a fundamental reconstruction.
