26 July


The museum's cinema hosts festivals, themed screening evenings and regular cycles of films.

This season, discover the screenings organised by learned societies, but also the evenings with the documentary training school Ateliers Varan, which make possible an encounter with the reality of a country by means of a filmed documentary in the spirit of Jean Rouch.

Themed cycles of films are also presented to reflect the museum's exhibitions. The sessions, which alternate fiction, documentary, archives and short films, introduce films and reference documentaries, from classics to rare films.

Ateliers Varan screenings

Each quarter, the musée du quai Branly presents an evening screening with Ateliers Varan, the documentary film training centre.

A direct descendant of the film of Jean Rouch, Richard Leacock, Pierre Perrault and Fred Wiseman, the Ateliers Varan train young filmmakers, teaching them to film everyday realities and to express in images what makes a cultural identity.

The quarterly evening screenings thus offer a new look at the documentary, with films produced outside the country by young French filmmakers, accompanied by teams from Ateliers Varan.

next Varan evening: Friday 9 November 2012, 6.30 pm
