NICE 2019 - THE ODYSSEY OF THE CINEMA - THE VICTORINE HAS 100 YEARS
Victorine, a century of cinema
The city of Nice is unquestionably one of the cradles of the film in France, and therefore in the world. It's in 1896 there are shown the first moving images of the Carnival. Nice as in Lyon, they are the Lumière brothers, to name predestined, who are then at the task. From this date, increasingly many shoots will settle in the city and studios settle there, the first being, around the years 1906-1907, a studio Pathé.
When, in 1919, Serge Sandberg, born in Lithuania, in Kaunas, and Louis Nalpas, born in Turkey, at Smyrna, decide to build new studios Nice, they set their sights on the area of the Victorine and ask the Dutch architect Édouard - Jean Niermans, by also author of the famous Negresco, to design the project.
From this date the Victorine will become part of this nice 'Factory' which will see hatch a prodigious filmography which identifies real nuggets that have marked the history of cinema, besides making Nice "a film object" whose image will be multiplied and glorified in the world.
Nice celebrates his love of cinema
And what emerged at the studios of the Victorine from 1919 countless masterpieces.
"Children of paradise" of Marcel Carné, 'Night' François Truffaut, Jacques Demy's "the Bay of Angels", "the mystery Picasso' of Henri-Georges Clouzot,"and God created woman"of Roger Vadim are few among the most emblematic s.
Therefore naturally in partnership with the Cinémathèque Française and sponsored by its Chairman, Costa-Gavras, the city of Nice celebrates the 100th anniversary of the studios of the Victorine with "Nice 2019 - the Odyssey of the Cinema".
