Barbara is the autumn. After Mathieu Amalric’s film with Jeanne Balibar, several exhibitions, films and DVDs all celebrate the lady in black.
The Barbara Exhibition, held at the Philharmonie de Paris, from 13 October 2017 to 28 January 2018, curated by Clémentine Deroudille, presents rare archive videos, sometimes never heard before, mainly from the National Audiovisual Institute (Ina). The videos will allow visitors to discover the numerous facets of this French singer.
As part of the exhibition, Ina and the Philharmonie are also publishing a set of two DVDs. Designed by Ina with the assistance of Clémentine Deroudille, it will invite you to rediscover the images of the exhibition, enhanced by many other documents, as well as two Ina-produced documentaries: Barbara ou ma plus belle histoire d’amour by Gérard Vergez and the documentary by Cyril Leuthy, Barbara, chansons pour une absente, shown for the first time. The production was co-produced by Ina and Arte.
It will be broadcast on Arte on 3 December 2017. The set will be exclusively available as of 13 October 2017 at the Philharmonie, before going on national release on 7 November 2017.
Ina also shows a photo exhibition of the singer, in front of the Palais Brongniart, from 10 November 2017. The exhibited was staged with Mathieu Amalric’s participation. Amalric will also be in the video on an application, in which he comments on the images he and the team have chosen. HIs film, devoted to the singer, came out in French cinemas in early September. It contains numerous Ina archives, edited to echo the footage of Jeanne Balibar.
