Programme 10 October

12:30 | Richard Leplastrier: Framing the View

In Florida, close to Orlando, lies The Villages, a gigantic residential area for retirees. How sustainable is their lifestyle? Filmmaker Valerie Blankenbyl considers a sensitive subject.

16:00 | Charlotte Perriand, Pioneer in the Art of Living
A revealing portrait of designer and free thinker Charlotte Perriand, one of the most distinctive designers of the 20th century.

17:15 | Building Bastille! The Tangled and Improbable story of the Opera Bastille
The Canadian architect Carlos Ott was 35 years old with little building experience when in 1982 he won the biggest competition of the time: the design of the new Paris opera house.
