“The proceedings of a Paris courtroom are the basis for one of the most striking nonfiction works to emerge from the continent in recent years. Drawing from over two hundred appearances in the 10th District Courtroom, all featuring the same steadfast judge, renowned photographer Raymond Dipardon provides compelling, often humorous observations of a series of misdemeanor hearings and sentencings. Using a simple, static formal structure, he captures the subtler details of human behavior which reveal the complexities of race, class, and gender in contemporary society.” Directed by Raymond Dipardon.
Showtime is at 7pm, and I will be there about 15 minutes early wearing a nametag reading “Sean”. The first few people who show up will get a somewhat discounted ticket thanks to Corinna’s employee discount.
