In 1965, young producer Barbet Schroeder supplied a 16mm camera, along with color film stock, to six friends, asking them to each make a short film about a Parisian neighborhood. The resulting films were shot quickly, with low budgets, improvised takes and live sound. Fresh and original, and featuring contributions by luminaries including Nestor Almendros, Albert Maysles and Jackie Reynal, these six vignettes offer captivating and varied glimpses of the City of Lights:

“Saint Germain des Prés” by Jean Douchet
“Gare du Nord” by Jean Rouch
“Rue Saint Denis” by Jean-Daniel Pollet
“Place de l’Étoile” by Eric Rohmer
“Montparnasse et Levallois” by Jean-Luc Godard
“La Muette” by Claude Chabrol

“Memorable! [Paris] is affectionately drawn by six New Wave directors in pleasing pastels.”
The New York Times

“A delicious smorgasbord of short offerings that pay tribute to the city that inspired the New Wave generation.”
