- Michel Simon (06.03 > 30.05)
Born the same year as cinema, Michel Simon was, for half a century, one of its most iconic faces. The talent and powerful personality of the Swiss legend marked a golden age of French and French-language cinema, particularly under the direction of René Clair, Jean Renoir, Jean Vigo and Julien Duvivier.
- Pascal Thomas (24.04 > 31.05)
Pascal Thomas’ comedies elicit smiles as they coyly play with autobiographical elements. Visibly inspired by the little things in life that he has witnessed or experienced, the director’s signature is a naturalistic sensibility as he explores the lives of people who look on the bright side of life. Provincial France is the setting for his idiosyncratic vision. After a break of eight years, which he dedicated to travel and readings, his more recent films include charming adaptations of Agatha Christie. His is the work of a maverick, catering to public taste yet personal and offbeat. Come and learn about his approach to his art in his master class.
