MIDNIGHT IN PARIS: A TRIBUTE TO JACQUES PRÉVERT AND MARCEL CARNÉ
Presented in collaboration with the French Film and TV Office in Los Angeles, French Embassy

April 27 & 28, 2012, at the Aero Theatre

In 1936, surrealist poet and screenwriter Jacques Prévert entered a partnership with director Marcel Carné on JENNY; what followed were more than a dozen years of collaboration that would come to redefine world cinema. Working together on films including LE JOUR SE LÈVE, GATES OF THE NIGHT and the immortal CHILDREN OF PARADISE, Prévert and Carné spearheaded a new movement in poetic realism with their fatalistic, Paris-set movies that combine urban grit with deeply romantic tragedy and melodrama.

Series compiled by Gwen Deglise. Program notes by Jim Hemphill.
