Carte blanche : Pascale Raynaud - Musée du Louvre - Paris

Carte blanche : Pascale Raynaud — Musée du Louvre — Paris

For this 40th edition, FIFA is honored to welcome the Carte Blanche of Pascale Raynaud, head of cinema programming at the Louvre.

For her Carte Blanche, Raynaud has selected films by two independent directors, Julien Devaux and Filippos Koutsaftis, that probe the heritage of the past. One explores the creative process of a young French painter, Mélissa Pinon, through her project to copy a masterpiece of French painting: Chardin’s La Raie. The second is a documentary on the town of Eleusis, haunted by the myth of Demeter. This small industrial town on the periphery of Athens, which in Antiquity hosted the rituals that initiated Greeks to the miracle of life and the approach of death, is today barely able to preserve its archaeological heritage.

Trait pour trait de Jean-Baptiste Chardin à Mélissa Pinon — Julien Devaux. France. 2012. 52 min. French. English subtitles.
La Pierre triste — Filippos Koutsaftis. Greece. 2000. 1 h 25 min. Greek. French subtitles.
