Film on Film

France’s answer to Roger Ebert, Michel Ciment is one of the most revered film critics in the world. Testimonies by everyone from Bertrand Tavernier and Arnaud Desplechin to Quentin Tarantino and Joel Coen back up that claim. Director Simoné Laine delves into Ciment’s influential life, including his history with film periodical Positif (and its infamous rivalry with Cahiers du cinema, penned by Truffaut and Godard). A longtime friend and advisor to the Festival, Ciment will participate in a special conversation after the film.
