Virginie Herz on photography, Amobe Mevegue on music, Sean Rose on exhibitions, Jessica Michault on fashion, Lisa Nesselson on cinema and Sylvia Whitman on literature... Every morning, our culture critics give you the lowdown on the latest trends. From Monday to Friday at 9.45 am.
Friday 8th March is International Women’s Day, so our book critic, Sylvia Whitman, tells us about four books that celebrate women and writing. From a new and multi-talented young female author to one of the great works of Western literature, we take a closer look at the world of women and books.
In Pablo Larrain's "No," dictator Augusto Pinochet's iron fist is no match for a silly slogan and a rainbow logo. The fact-based story of Chile's 1988 referendum on the dictator is wry and sly. In "Spring Breakers," by Harmony Korine, four college students in bikinis get quite an education. And the Festival Touts-Petits Cinema is training the next generation of film-goers to sit still and enjoy the show.
Today our music critic Amobe Mevegue brings us the posthumous album of the "Barefoot Diva", Cesaria Evora. He also tells us about the French DJ David Guetta's new video dedicated to Western Africa, and the new release from French pop star Tété.
France’s 24’s photo critic, Siobhán Silke pays tribute to two photographers who died this week; the French war photojournalist Olivier Voisin and red carpet snapper Willy Rizzo.
