The Forum des images honors one of the most filmed cities in the history of cinema: Los Angeles.
An essential territory of the 7th art, the city of angels feeds multiple imaginations.
A reservoir of dreams and fantasies, between violence and glamour, it is familiar to the moviegoer. But what do we know about the real city?
From April 12 to July 6, 80 films, 9 cinema classes, “pop” screenings and a photo exhibition constitute a temporal and geographical journey to the heart of its myths and the reality of its districts.
Accompanied by numerous guests, including filmmakers David Robert Mitchell and Laura Gabbert (City of Gold), Academy Museum Associate Director K.J. Relth-Miller, storyboarder Sylvain Despretz, and film course instructors, this rich program paints a contrasting and contemporary portrait of Los Angeles, a world city between desert and ocean.

Le cinéma de Marie-Josèphe, Jil Servant
ON FRANCE TELEVISION
Special programming on the France Télévisions Overseas channels for the 76th edition of the Cannes Film Festival
Le cinéma de Marie-Josèphe – Unpublished – On the channels of the La 1ère Network and La1ere.fr
Marie-Josèphe Yoyotte is a reference in her field, from the 1950s to the 2000s.
She has contributed, through her work as an editor, to the editing of films in our collective memory such as Les Quatre Cents Coups by François Truffaut, Rue Cases-Nègres by Euzhan Palcy or Moi, un Noir by Jean Rouch.
This native of Martinique will have touched all cinematographic genres and will have even known how to adapt to the digital revolution.
With determination and an open mind, she accompanied the beginnings of the New Wave while supporting all the developments of French cinema.
She received three César awards for best editing: in 1977 for Alain Corneau’s Police Python 357, in 1997 with Florence Ricard for Microcosmos and in 2002 for Le Peuple migrateur by Jacques Perrin, Jacques Cluzaud and Michel Debats.
Through the testimonies of editors and directors with whom she has worked, and excerpts from the films she has edited, Jil Servant takes us to the heart of the editor’s craft, the very essence of film writing.
Although he never met her, because she died in 2017, he manages to convey to us the passion that animated her, her curiosity and her permanent will to learn.
