A propos de ce titre
Paris, more than any other city on earth, offers a feast for cinema-goers. Cinema s place among the arts is special and far superior to that found anywhere else. The sheer number and variety of theatres dedicated to the diversity of the cinematic art and its pleasures, ensure an enduring festive spirit. Cineastes and cinéphiles from the world over gather in Paris to indulge their appetites for film.
Global cinema lives in the city s screening rooms. This book delights in revealing some of the fascinating details of this life, for to celebrate the film theatres of Paris is to celebrate film culture itself.
Conceived by film scholar Dina Iordanova and film critic and author Jean-Michel Frodon, known here, respectively, as the privileged outsider and the cognisant insider , Cinemas of Paris is a compendium of writings by specialists in both film and the city. Lavishly illustrated tales are told of the unique places where film is screened, chiefly the independent theatres with their often idiosyncratic backgrounds (and occasionally a few ghosts), but also about the city s unique cultural institutions and its ubiquitous multiplexes. And there are stories, too, of the men and the women who have made these places strongholds of cinematic discovery and delight, and who continue to keep cinema alive.
The 372 pages of the book feature contributions by international academics Sue Harris, William Brown, Daniel Fairfax, Michael Gott, Frances Guerin, Renaud Olivero, Ana Grgic, Flora Lichaa, and Yoana Pavlova,as well as by a number of world-renowned directors such as Amos Gitai, Gaston Kabore, Naomi Kawase, Jia Zhangke, Abbas Kiarostami, Ken Loach, Cristian Mungiu, Walter Salles, Gus Van Sant, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul. It depicts and explains the complete system that allows such a diversity.
The book includes essays on a variety of cinematic institutions, including majors (UGC, Gaumont, Pathé), minimajors (MK2), prominent cultural venues (Cinémathèque Française, Forum des Images, Centre Pompidou), clusters of cinemas (Odéon Cinemas, les cinemas Action), essays on a wide selection of 35 unique cinemas (from L Arlequin to Les Ursulines,from Luminor to Etoile Lilas, from Le Grand Rex to Le Louxor...). And much more.About the Author:
Dina Iordanova is a global traveller. The current book, a labour of love, was conceived during one of her many visits to Paris, where she has been returning all over again for more than two decades. Although she has not yet managed to relocate herself physically, she is moving in her heart and soul s direction, with short spells for time out in other favourite places, like Istanbul and Hong Kong. Originally from a cinéphile family, she first studied Philosophy before running away from theory to indulge her passion for Cinema. Dina is the author, co-author and editor of many works, including: BFI Companion to Russian and Eastern European Cinema (1999), Cinema of Flames (2001), Emir Kusturica (2002), Cinema of the Other Europe (2003), Cinema of the Balkans (2006), The Film Festival Circuit (2009), Cinema at the Periphery (2010), Moving People, Moving Images (2010), Film Festivals and Imagined Communities (2010), Film Festivals and East Asia (2011), Film Festivals and Activism (2012), Digital Disruption (2012), Film Festival Reader (2013), Film Festivals and the Middle East (2014) and of many articles and chapters. She is Professor of Film Studies, and Director of the Institute for Global Cinema and Creative Cultures at the ancient University of St Andrews in Scotland, where she established the Film Studies programme in 2004.
Jean-Michel Frodon was born and raised in Paris. One might say he was also born and raised in cinema, since both his parents worked in the field. He studied history, became an educator, then a photographer, before becoming a film critic and journalist almost by accident (if such things can happen). A former senior film editor for Le Point and Le Monde, he was also editor-in-chief of Cahiers du cinéma (2003-2009). He now writes for the online magazine Slate.fr. A relentless traveller, always willing to connect the far to the nearby, the aesthetic with the political, he teaches at Sciences Po in Paris, at the ancient University of St Andrews, Scotland, and at the Film Factory created by Béla Tarr in Sarajevo. He is the author or editor of books dedicated to film history, theory, French and Chinese cinema, and on several directors, including: La Projection nationale (1998), Conversation avec Woody Allen (2000), Hou Hsiao-hsien (2005), Horizon cinéma (2006), Le Cinéma chinois (2006), Robert Bresson (2008), Gilles Deleuze et les images (2008), La Critique de cinéma (2008), Amos Gitai, Genèses (2009), Cinema and the Shoah (2010), Le Cinéma d Edward Yang (2010), Le Cinéma français, de la Nouvelle Vague à nos jours (2010), Assayas par Assayas (2014), L Art du cinéma (2014), O Mundo de Jia Zhang-ke (2014) and Que fait le cinéma ? (2015).
