Based on images taken before the Hamas attacks on October 7 and the return attacks by the Israeli army, Piero Usberti’s story does not claim to be neutral. His point of view remains that of an outsider who makes his distance from the situation a strength.

Joyful chronicles of Cézanne’s studio visited by people from all over the world. Looks, presences of beings and things, small conversations about beauty, and apple-tasting vanities.

Based on Cézanne’s exchanges with his friend Joachim Gasquet, the filmmakers deliver an immense exploration of art, painting, nature and representation. How to see the act of seeing, of looking?

Punctual appointment.
On several evenings during the season, the Simone de Beauvoir Audiovisual Center presents films from its collection of international documentaries on the history, rights and creation of women and LGBTQ+. Screenings in the presence of the directors and followed by a debate.
