20 Visions of Paris

20 Visions of Paris

The idea was simple yet hard to implement: to ask young European directors to explore Paris with their video cameras and to capture personal visions of the city.

Living all in Europe, these young directors were citizens of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Finland, France, Germany, Great-Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Macedonia, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, but also Kazakhstan, Peru, or South Korea.

From hunting for a location to editing, they had 5 days, from the 28 of August to the 1 of September 2006 -during the celebration of NISI MASA's 5th anniversary, to create their short documentaries. Compiled their films constitute a unique patchwork, a different perspective of an all too familiar city.

In this short documentary we discover the 8th district of Paris, the district of the Rich. We tried to see what rich people are doing in Paris, how they eat, how day spend their time. As most of the documentaries are dealing with the poor nowadays we thought it is an interesting topic. The film was shot during a documentary workshop in Paris.
