K-Cinema comes to Paris at the annual Korean film festival
Issued on: Modified:
As Korea celebrates a century of cinematic production, the country’s films are more popular than ever outside of the peninsula. Bong Joon-ho's "Parasite" won the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival, and Korean cinema is celebrated annually in Paris with a festival on the Champs Élysées; our reporters went to check it out.
Also, Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite strikes a poignant note at the Paris Opera with her bold and emotional contemporary piece "Body and Soul".
Meanwhile, an artist synonymous with ballet, movement and the wings of that prestigious stage is in the spotlight at the Musée d’Orsay: "Dégas at the Opera" looks at the performance space as a social microcosm.
And the musical adaptation of the 1990 film "Ghost" brings that screen romance to the stage here in the French capital.
