Redessan

The 8th Festival celebrating the cinema films shot on old fashioned celluloid film is taking place from 4th to 7th August and this is an open air festival.

It’s being organised by the Jean-Paul Boyer club, a man who was born in Redessan in 1921 and in the early 1950’s invented the process of saving the images from these first celluloid films. So it’s mainly in thanks to him that original films from the likes of the brothers Lumière, de Méliès, or featuring Charlie Chaplin as well as also oldies from Gaumont, Warner, Fox MGM and many others have been preserved or restored.

So Thursday 4th is a showing of Atalante, a 1934 comedy with Michel Simon This will be in the courtyard of the Marcel Pagnol school, but on Friday 5th., there’s “Some like it hot” with Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon & Tony Curtis.
