Journeys Through French Cinema – Watch the trailer for the new documentary series


This is a follow-up series to Bertrand Tavernier’s documentary “My Journey Through French Cinema” (2017).

Bertrand Tavernier’s personal journey through French cinema, from films he enjoyed as a boy to his own early career, told through portraits of key creative figures.

The eight-part series includes two episodes on Tavernier’s favorite directors, an episode on musicals by Julien Duvivier; two episodes on French cinema before, during and immediately after the German Occupation, two episodes on forgotten French directors, and one episode entitled “My 1960s”.

The series includes material that Tavernier was unable to put in the film, including sections about Tati, Bresson, Pagnol, Ditri, Clouzeau, foreigners working in the French cinema etc. and forgotten directors – such as Raymond Bernard, Maurice Turner, Anatole Litvak, and many women directors who are less well-known.

Episodes 1-4 of Journeys Through French Cinema premiere on the Cohen Media Channel on January 1, followed by Episodes 5-8 starting February 1.
