At twenty-three, holder of a maîtrise in cinema from the Université de Paris VIII, he went on with his studies in the United States, in the heart of New York City. In the late 1980s he returned to France to direct shorts and then, in 1992, with Rien du tout, his first full-length feature film, a social comedy about an employer’s problems with his employees.

Cédric Klapisch rose to international prominence in 2002 with the release of L’Auberge Espagnole, for which Cécile de France won the César for most promising actress in 2003. After his first box-office hit, the director’s talents were hailed again in 2005, on the release of Russian Dolls, which earned Oscar nominations in 2006 for best film editing and best supporting actress.

This special event, which took place as part of a debate on the role of movies in society, made it possible to discuss the ongoing scandal about the pay of French actors, as well as to gain a greater understanding of the art of moviemaking, which is continuing to delight spectators both well informed and demanding. This interactive talk also allowed those in attendance to ask the speaker any questions that occurred to them.
