Paris: A Love Story

“We’ll always have Paris,” says Humphrey Bogart to Ingrid Bergman in the beloved classic movie Casablanca. For most people it’s a wonderful Hollywood fantasy, but for journalist and author Kati Marton, a childhood Hungarian immigrant to the USA, it’s been her life. From seeing the student riots of May 1968 to jogging along the Seine in the 21st century as a recent widow, she has experienced Paris in many ways. CANAPE talks with the writer about her book Paris: A Love Story as a lens on family and friends, husbands and lovers, life and loss.


Rendez Vous with French Cinema

For movie lovers there is no better sign of spring in New York City than the arrival of Rendez Vous with French Cinema, the annual showcase of Gallic productions screened in venues across the city. This year the selection includes, amon
g others, In the House by Francois Ozon, Three Worlds by Catherine Corsini, Augustine by Alice Winocour, and You Will Be My Son by Gilles Legrand. CANAPE sneaks a peek at what 2013 has to offer.


Dan Tepfer

If there were ever any doubt that jazz is an international musical form, then pianist and composer Dan Tepfer could supply the necessary proof. Born to American parents in Paris, he studied classical music as a child at the Paris Conservatoire Paul Dukas. After a brief university sojourn in astropshysics, he returned to his first love at the New England Conservatory of Music. Now based in New York, he has been named a Cultural Envoy for the US State Department. CANAPE catches up with the busy musician at the Yamaha Artist Services.


Francois Ozon

At the Lycee Gustave Flaubert they teach respect for literature and creativity. But what if things go too far? What if the line between literature and life, between teacher and student begins to
blur? Winner of major prizes at Toronto and San Sebastian, the new film by Francois Ozon In the House poses those questions while employing a first rate cast of Fabrice Luchini, Emmanuelle Seigner, and Kristin Scott-Thomas. Director Ozon shares his thoughts about the project with CANAPE.

Lo’Jo

Rock, classical, jazz, African, gypsy, reggae, dub, and the creole music of the Indian Ocean: that’s quite a bag of tricks for any single band but it’s the creative mix that has driven Lo’Jo for more than twenty five years. Based in the Loire Valley city of Angers, these musicians see no frontiers in musical creation. They play music of the whole world for the whole world. Founder Denis Pean, the son of local farmers, chats with CANAPE about their artistic trajectory.
