August 2010 - An Interview with Dante James
An award-winning, independent filmmaker, Dante James recently wrote and directed Harlem in Montmartre, a documentary that traces the phenomenal development of jazz in France from the end of WWI to the end of WWII. We had the opportunity to interview him shortly after the presentation of his film at the France Noire/Black France Film Festival in Paris. Read our article in this month's Paris Insights.
Rougui Dia, born in Paris to Senegalese parents, learned the flavors and savors of Senegalese cuisine in her mother’s kitchen. She is now head chef at Le 144, a fine-dining restaurant located in the 7th arrondissement. The owner of the restaurant, Armen Petrossian, is the son and nephew of the founders of the prestigious caviar boutique Petrossian. We write about their passion for preparing great epicurean fare in this month's Le Bon Goût.
And in this month's Paris, Past and Present we report on the fabulous Forum des Images, where the France Noire/Black France Film Festival took place. With an annual operating budget of 7.5 million euros, the Forum is a cultural Mecca for cinephiles!
