In 4k digital restoration
After the presentation of Jean Renoir’s Boudu sauvé des eaux and Luchino Visconti’s Guépard, Pathé and the Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé Foundation continue their journey through the Pathé catalogue and return to the Lumière Festival in order to present a restored digital version of Marcel Carné’s Enfants du Paradis (1945), - with screenplay and dialogues by Jacques Prévert.

Axel Brücker, King of Promotional Clips

The principle of preserving and restoring our film heritage was initially applied to feature films. It was later applied to short films and documentaries. Axel-Brücker preserved promotional clips. His collection includes a total of 20,000 archives and is without any doubt the finest in the world. Lumiere 2011 will spotlight both collection and collector.
