With Agnès Jaoui’s departure for Paris earlier that day to continue work on editing her next feature with Jean-Pierre Bacri, tentatively titled Place publique (set around a house warming party) AURORE director Blandine Lenoir greeted Glasgow audiences at GFT in the company of French Film Festival UK chair James Steel, co-director Ilona Morison, programmer Coline Pelard Lassalle, and transport co-ordinator George Ormiston. And Blandine proudly wore her latest purchase – a pair of silver brogues made for walking back to Paris today with a little help from Air France. Bon voyage!
