Bertrand Tavernier

Bertrand Tavernier has been making celebrated films for 40 years – receiving among others Cesar awards for Capitaine Conan (1996) or Que la fête commence (1975), and an Academy Award for best original music score for Around midnight (1987). In this major interview with Culture(s) With Vivendi, this prolific filmmaker and fascinating cinema-lover brings back some of the French cinema figures of the 1930s to 1970s whom he dedicated his documentary Voyage à travers le cinema français in official selection at Cannes Classics (May 2016). 

Directors such as Jean Renoir, Jacques Becker or Marcel Carné are mentioned along with film music composers like Georges Delerue, Maurice Jaubert, Joseph Kosma and Jean Wiener – all featured on the music album accompanying the movie (Decca Records, Universal Music France). Through his documentary, Bertrand Tavernier pays tribute not only to directors and composers but to all the figures of the cinema industry. The “seventh art” is here defined as a collective art, an “incredible act of creation”.

An encounter with a cinema figure at the heart of his inspiration: an invitation to embark on an immense journey through French cinematographic heritage. “Bon voyage”!

In 2016, the velvety-voiced diva came back with a sixth album, called Day Breaks, which bears similarities to her first album. On it, she combines jazz, blues, folk and country influences.
