"A SUMMER IN PARIS"
With the theme "A summer in Paris", Films on the Green 2016 will offer a striking portrait of the City of Lights, its urban landscape, and cultural diversity. A selection of classic, New Wave, and contemporary films will showcase the city’s aesthetic, cultural, and cinematic history from a dramatically unconventional angle through stories of love, romance, adolescence, female identity, and urban life in Parisian and its surrounding suburbs.
Films on the Green 2016 is part of Tandem Paris-New York, a large-scale transatlantic cultural exchange between Paris and New York.
