Orange is supporting the Jacques Tati, deux temps trois mouvements exhibition at the Cinémathèque française (French Film Archive)
Paris, Orange is supporting the exceptional exhibition on the fifties and sixties’ French film maker Jacques Tati hosted by the Cinémathèque française from 8 April to 2 August 2009. “Tati is the father of modernity as well as a vision of the future. How obvious for Orange to link up with the Cinémathèque française to pay homage to this cinematic genius”, asserts Serge Toubiana, General Manager of the Cinémathèque française.
With three shorts and six feature films, Jacques Tati established himself as one of the most original and inventive of comic film directors. His utterly modern work drew its brilliantly humorous inspiration from the areas of communications and technology.
To accompany the event, Orange cinema series (the French pay TV channels) is putting together a Jacques Tati special series of programmes on the Orange cine geants channel.
There will be a competition game on the orange.fr website for the general public to win tickets to the exhibition and 400 tickets will also be distributed to Orange employees.
These initiatives honouring Jacques Tati as a monument of the French cinema, underline Orange’s commitment to the 7th Art.
