Rodin in His Time
"The 19th century is like no other: an aesthetic, scientific and political bubbling is changing the face of the world. Paris is a genuine cultural hub. An intellectual and artistic elite was formed including Auguste Rodin. Bold and gifted, he and others altered this era forever. Rodin’s destiny is both singular and closely context related. Fed by a public and private correspondence, this film will draw the strands of his life and reminds the background when required. However, it will be anything but a commemoration: Rodin is still alive because eternal. In Paris, his sculptures are an integral part of the urban decor: The Penseur and Balzac at Varenne subway station, the D’Alembert at the town Hall… Through constant back and forth between past and present, this film is about Rodin’s spirit, forever among us."
