Icarus Films is proud to be active in traditional and new media, and to work with new talent as well as old masters.

In 1965, young producer Barbet Schroeder supplied a 16mm camera, along with color film stock, to six friends and asked them to each make a short film about a Parisian neighborhood. The resulting films were shot quickly, with low budgets, improvised takes and live sound. According to the Chicago Reader, “the Rouch, Chabrol, and Rohmer segments shouldn’t be missed,” and The New Yorker says Rouch’s film is “one of the greatest short films ever made.” Gorgeously restored in 2K, these six vignettes offer captivating and varied glimpses of the City of Lights:

  • "Saint Germain des Prés" by Jean Douchet
  • "Gare du Nord" by Jean Rouch
  • "Rue Saint Denis" by Jean-Daniel Pollet
  • "Place de l'Étoile" by Éric Rohmer
  • "Montparnasse et Levallois" by Jean-Luc Godard
  • "La Muette" by Claude Chabrol

directed by: Claude Chabrol, Jean Douchet, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Daniel Pollet, Eric Rohmer and Jean Rouch
starring: Jean-Pierre Andréani, Stéphane Audran, Nadine Ballot
