In advance of Red Bull Music Academy Paris 2015, Paris Now! is our first foray into fiction film, and it gathers a diverse group of directors that we’ve given carte blanche to explore and examine the creative pockets and reverberations of Parisian culture. These films are not documentaries but demonstrations, personal stories reflecting the breadth of contemporary Parisian creative expression. It’s the perfect outlet for telling the story of a city with so many layers, disciplines, energies and audio frequencies on display.
From voguing to cooking, emojis to puppets, Romain Cieutat, Quentin Dupieux, Dexter Navy, Anne Horel and Julien + Adrien have taken wildly different approaches. Enjoy all five films below.
