AMELIEN

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique.

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, let me tell you a funny (or kind of funny) story. It’s the story of one of the most famous French movie directors, Jean-Pierre Jeunet. The year is 1997. At this time, Jean-Pierre and his co-director Marc Caro had just given the world some of the most promising, fresh and interesting movies of their times. From their French short films (Le Bunker De La Dernière Rafale, Pas de Repos Pour Billy Brako) to their features (Delicatessen, City Of The Lost Children), they were bringing something really new to cinema. And not just French cinema, worldwide cinema. No wonder Hollywood called them...

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE EXCHANGE

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, what if it were all about the cultural exchange? In the new episode of Rendez-Vous d’Amérique, which you can see now on TV5Monde USA, we have two stories that demonstrate that we’re all about cultural exchanges. And they are two very different stories. One is about a Comic Book festival in California with a lot of French authors visiting, the other about a jazz dance school in Harlem that welcomes 14 young dancers from Vendée… But both are saying the same thing: those little cultural exchanges can make the world a better place.
