NAVIRE NIGHT

WITH

FANNY ARDANT

ABOUT US

Every night in Paris, hundreds of men and women use the anonymity of unassigned telephone lines...

… Those dating back to the German occupation, to talk to each other, to love each other. These people, shipwrecked by love and desire, are dying to love, to escape the abyss of solitude…

TEXT / Le Navire Night, by Marguerite Duras

BACH: Cello Suites Nos. 3 & 4

“It’s a question of digging into the string until the phrase is born, along with its right breath. A sentence in perpetual becoming. It never stops being made and remade. I waited a long time to record them. And then one day, or rather one night, I began.”
