Production of a two-part, two-hour documentary film series about art and culture in Paris between 1905 and 1930.

PARIS: THE LUMINOUS YEARS is a two-part, two-hour series for public-television broadcast in 2008. Its subjects are Modernism and the birth of 20th-century culture. Between 1905 and 1930, Paris was regarded as the artistic center of the Western world, the locus of much that was innovative in the arts as the avant-garde there overthrew centuries of academic tradition in nearly every artistic discipline. Twentieth-century art and culture are thought to have been born -- or at least significantly advanced -- in Paris, but their lineage is international. To the artists who lived and worked there during these luminous years, Paris-as-Place was all-important. The significance of place is therefore the organizing theme of this visually rich documentary that asks, Why Paris?
