RIDM Special 20th

Forever Heddy Honigmann

Film index A to Z

People come from around the world to stand at the graves of Balzac, Callas and Jim Morrison in Père-Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. Surrounded by the tombs of the famous, the filmmaker decided to turn her camera on unnamed ordinary people – still very much alive. She emerges with a remarkable gallery of characters. Each generously shares a glimpse into their own story. Discreet and empathetic, Heddy Honigmann dresses their confidences in perfectly realized visuals.

Presented in collaboration with Canal D and the Cinéma sous les étoiles de Funambules Médias
