MONTMARTRE "Like an island in the air"

This film chronicles the story of the most legendary quartier of Paris, from an exciting new angle and bringing to light unpublished archival material.

From the earliest and sacred origins of the hill to its captivating cast of painters, writers, poets, artists and innkeepers, it leaves no stone unturned in its unique and fascinating story.

Taking the spectator on an exploratory journey through Montmartre and its domains, it sheds light on the witch’s passage, the dreamlike Château des Brouillards, the mills held dear by painters since Corot and Renoir, the ateliers of the avenue Junot as well as a diversity of religious buildings from the ancient Saint Pierre church to the more recent Saint-Jean and the Basilica, not forgetting Montmartre’s famous vineyard, the exceptional Cité des Arts and the only anonymous all eyeleft in Paris.

Revealing an exceptional location, both mystical and revolutionary, and which succeeded in bringing together entertainment and art, solitude and community life, the film invites the viewer to rediscover this famous tourist site, paradoxically very little known, through a fascinating historical journey.
