Paris has been represented on screen more than 800 times since the beginning of American cinema. Many directors have filmed in the French capital and reconstructed parts of the city in the studio. Ernst Lubitsch (1892-1947), a German-born American film director, often used Paris as a backdrop, captivated by its districts, its atmosphere and its monuments.
A cinematic journey which will show you another side of Paris. This exhibition explores various visions of the French capital in American films, with a collection of photographs, film extracts, costumes and posters.
