“We’re restoring the nobility of DVD”


INTERVIEW – Carlotta Films has observed the Cinephilia flame in theaters and on video for more than twenty years. Vincent Paul-Boncour is the director.

LE FIGARO. – Theatrical distributor and video editor of heritage films, is it the same job?

Vincent PAUL-BONCOUR. – – My first job is a theatrical distribution. I started with Death on the hunt, by Hitchcock, in a restored copy, in 35 mm. A well-known and recognized work that we haven’t seen in the cinema. I wanted to bring a new generation with me to discover them on the big screen. It was 1998, in the days of the VHS, which wasn’t a fine medium for cinephilia. In 2000 DVD came out and we naturally added video to our theater work. I already had a precise editorial vision, the desire to create beautiful objects with additions. DVD has revolutionized the way you watch movies at home. Carlotta’s first outing is The trilogy of life de Pasolini, for whom I also had the theater rights. We tested the synergy between the carriers. It has remained our way of doing things.

Cinemas and DVD publications don’t compete with each other?
