24 HEURES SUR PLACE
by Ila Bêka, Louise Lemoine
Country: France
Year: 2014

Forty years after Louis Malle’s documentary Place de la République, and a year after the recent renovation work, this is what happens in this famous corner of Paris during the span of an entire day. Twenty-four hours of people passing by in this intersection of bodies, sounds, vehicles, and car horns. The statue of “Marianne” offers an exceptional view of the square and how light changes it as the hours go by, casting new shadows and crafting new atmospheres.

Declaration

film director

“An homage to Louis Malle, this film is a like a moving polaroid of the East side of Paris during the course of a complete day in June 2014. Touching on politics, love affairs, work issues, worries and hopes, a vertiginous collection of portraits emerges, giving us a feel for the French capital’s state of being.”
