Bertrand Tavernier: Filmmaker and film lover

He’s renowned for lending his films introspection and humanity, establishing him as one of French cinema’s most compassionate and progressive figures. It’s this vision that Bertrand Tavernier brought to the Champs-Elysées Film Festival, which he chaired this year. France 24’s Louise Dupont caught up with him to talk about Hollywood and the differences between French and American cinema.

Also on the show, we meet the French authors who are bringing comic books to life.

Plus, from a big idea to a bigger and bigger screen: we take a look back at the evolution of the television, 80 years after it first launched in France.
