1/ "The Americans": tout est en anglais, rien a sous-titrer
Half a century ago the Swiss born, New York based photographer Robert Frank created his seminal book The Americans. First published in France in 1958, it was issued the next year by pioneering American publisher Barney Rosset at Grove Press. Now the enduring power of its images are on display at the Metroplotian Museum of Art exhibition “Looking In: Robert Frank’s The Americans.” Curator Jeff L. Rosenheim puts it all in context for CANAPE. Afterwards, CANAPE takes a peak at An American Journey, Philippe Seclier’s documentary about Robert Frank.

2/ Cannes-New York Film Festival
Critics agree that the 2009 Cannes Film Festival was a great success in offering new masterworks from veteran directors. The pleasures of the Riviera in spring become the highlights of The New York Film Festival in the fall. CANAPE is on the scene on both sides of the big pond. Alain Resnais, Michael Haneke, and Lars VonTrier all weigh in about the state of cinema now.

3/ Michelin Guide of New York City 2010
What could be more important than luggage when you travel? For some folks it’s their copy of the Michelin Guide. This year’s editions are out and CANAPE explores what’s new. Jean Luc Naret, director of the guides, offers his view to CANAPE while three Michelin  star chef Daniel Boulud serves CANAPE a few tasty thoughts.

4/ Food Beware 
What would happen if we all decided to eat healthy? That’s exactly what the small town Barjac in the south of France decided to find out by going organic. CANAPE takes a look at the new documentary Food Beware by Jean Paul Jaud. And, please, stay away from the concession stand as you watch.
