{Paris, Je T'aime}


This accumulation of acclaimed international directors presents an intimate portrait of one of the most romantic cities in the world: Paris. Each directors' short segment will be connected to the next in one of the (if not thee) most unique collaborative films of all time!

Each director is given five minutes to weave a single narrative unit out of those twenty moments. Each transition will begin with the last shot of the previous film and will end with the first shot of the following film, and will have a three functions: 1) The first is to extend the emotion of the previous segment, 2) The second is to prepare the audience for the surprise of the next segment, and 3) The third is to provide a general, comfortable and cohesive atmosphere to the feature film.

Considering the common theme of Paris and love, the fusion between the films, the transitions, and the unique storytelling, Paris, je t'aime will not be just another "anthology" picture. This collective feature film will constitute a two-hour cinematographic spectacle whose original structure will make for a dramatically different experience for a global audience.
