From the festival’s press kit:
William Friedkin will be the guest of honour at the second Toute la mémoire du monde festival, which takes place from 3 to 8 December. We are delighted and proud to welcome the director of Sorcerer (the remake of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Le Salaire de la peur), a restored copy of which he will introduce. Mr Friedkin enthusiastically responded when we asked him to choose five films from among his personal favourites for us to screen. His picks include Jean-Pierre Melville’s Le Samouraï (digitally restored by Pathé), Hitchcock’s Vertigo and Woody Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanours. Cinephiles will be eager and delighted to chat with him when he comes to the Cinémathèque.
