This festival, which takes place throughout the Ile-de-France region and of which “l’Obs” is a partner, this year explores the links between bitumen and film. A fascinating peregrination.
Surreptitiously add the words “city” and “cinema”: right now, the images spring up. Films that are etched on our retinas have the most common backdrops: the streets of New York City, London, Rome, and Paname. As if the cinema was a walking art form, burrowing par excellence.
It is precisely on the cinematographic city that Close-Up is looking this year, a fine-looking Parisian festival, of which “l’Obs” is a partner and which takes place from 13 to 19 October everywhere in Ile-de-France (at Batignolles in the 17th arrondissement of Paris, but also in Chelles, Sceaux, Bagnolet …)
Among an abundant program, the curious will be able to see, among others, the next film of Jacques Audiard, “the Olympiades”, but also documentaries like “I liked to live there” by Régis Sauder (with the presence of Annie Ernaux ) or films devoted to Washington, Lisbon, Istanbul, Brasilia, Shanghai …
This year, Close-Up is also interested in Le Corbusier (“Bonne Maman et Le Corbusier”, by Marjolaine Normier), in contemporary China and in the brilliant Michael Mann.
