Meet Paolo Sorrentino 


Whether filming the mysteries of power (Il divo, about Giulio Andreotti) or what remains of the Roman dolce vita (The Great Beauty), Paolo Sorrentino always proceeds in his own baroque, whirlwind, spectacular way. He is one of the most important Italian filmmakers of the moment and offers us a premiere of his latest work, awarded in Venice, a resolutely autobiographical film about his Neapolitan youth, The Hand of God

Host: Didier Allouch, journalist, Canal+ Hollywood correspondent

Invitation to Paolo Sorrentino

Conversation with Édouard Baer  

MC-BaerÉdouard Baer is a man who expresses himself with communicative fantasy! Author, actor (nominated for a César for Mademoiselle de Joncquières), and now a filmmaker in his own right, he directs movies that are uniquely his own, infused with a crazy elegance and freedom. At the Lumière festival, he will present the premiere of Adieu Paris !, his fourth film.

Host : Virginie Apiou, journalist

Meet Philippe Sarde

MC-SardeFrom Claude Sautet to André Téchiné, Bertrand Blier, Jacques Doillon or, of course, Bertrand Tavernier, with whom he collaborated many times, the composer Philippe Sarde has accompanied five decades of French cinema and delivered some of the most moving and emblematic scores of the second half of the 20th century. An extraordinary character with an exceptional nature, his presence is an honour and a privilege.

Host: Stéphane Lerouge, film music specialist, Raymond Chirat Prize 2018 recipient  

Signing by Philippe Sarde at the end of the 11am master class (around 12:15pm)

Meet Edgar Morin 

MC-morinA sociologist and philosopher, Edgar Morin was one of the first researchers in the humanities to study the cinema, notably, alongside Jean Rouch, in the unique experiment of cinéma-vérité that became Chronicle of a Summer (1961). A centenarian since the summer, he observes the world and its representations with acuity and wisdom. His attendance at the Lumière festival is truly a gift.

Host: Denis Lafay, director of ‘Pôle Idées’ at La Tribune and co-author of works with Edgar Morin
