Take a look at modern Paris, but with nostalgic eyes! Filmmakers Antoine Pai and Mathieu Maury capture the timeless city using a vintage Pentax 67, somehow transforming clichéd scenes into arresting portraits of simple beauty. Pai explains the project in poetic terms: “Marcel Proust once said, ‘Mystery is not about traveling to new places but it’s about looking with new eyes.’ That is totally what we felt while shooting this film.”
