Little Theatre celebrates the City of Light

Aug. 9, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Western Film Society presents the area debut of "Paris, Je T'Aime," featuring the collective work of 20 directors and a global cast of nearly 70, Friday through Sunday, Aug. 17-19, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

Show times are Friday and Saturday at 7 and 9:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 and 5 p.m. General admission is $5 and $3 for students.

"Paris, Je T'Aime" tells an anthology of love stories, each freely produced by one of the film's 20 directors in a different Parisian quarter. Varying in style, genre, culture and lifestyle, each story is seemingly unrelated, bearing the originality of its filmmaker and cast. A team of producers has carefully woven each world together, connecting them one by one with delicate transitional threads. The result is a film with unique tone, a timeless theme and a compelling story.

The collection is presented by a talented cast that includes Juliette Binoche, Steve Buscemi, Wes Craven, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Emily Mortimer, Nick Nolte, Natalie Portman and Elijah Wood, among scores of others from different corners of the world.

The 2006 film has a run time of 120 minutes and is rated R due to language and brief drug use.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's East Campus. Free off-street parking is available behind the theatre. For more information, visit the Western Film Society at www.rso.wmich.edu/wfs or call the Little Theatre movie line at (269) 387-8221.
