About

"PARIS LA is born of shared perspectives. It’s a project, like a love story, that comes from the feeling of being in one place, thinking about another.

DEE REES’ MUDBOUND

A series of sketches of post-Second World War life in the Mississippi delta—based on the source novel by Hillary Jordan—a group of very compelling characters is left stranded, perhaps casualties of the demands of the two-hour narrative. Of particular interest is the […]

ALICE SPRINGS — MRS. NEWTON

“Ramatuelle August 30, 1978 “The forest is on fire. The mistral is blowing up a gale. Within minutes, the entire sky was lit up—trees like torches igniting one another, billowing clouds of red smoke traveling fast.
