About the film:

“a silky, soulful black-and-white tapestry of single millennials seeking connection”

—Peter Debruge for Variety

World Premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. Scripted by Audiard with writer-director Céline Sciamma and Léa Mysius, Paris, 13th District reimagines three graphic novels from American writer-illustrator Adrian Tomine. Émilie meets Camille who is attracted to Nora, who crosses paths with Amber. Three girls and a boy – They’re friends, sometimes lovers and often both, while trying to figure out their lives in Paris.

About the filmmaker:

One of France’s most acclaimed auteurs and a regular at Cannes, Jacques Audiard made a name for himself with moody, stylised dramas and thrillers. He made his debut in 1994 with See How They Fall, followed by A Self-Made Hero in 1996 and Read My Lips in 2001. His fourth and fifth films won 8 and 9 César Awards respectively: the BAFTA-winner The Beat That My Heart Skipped (2005) and the Cannes Grand Prix winner and Academy-Award nominated A Prophet (2009). His 2012 film Rust and Bone competed for the Palme d’Or at Cannes, and his next film Dheepan won in 2015. His first American film The Sisters Brothers won Best Director at Venice in 2018.
