A warm and richly humorous film that nods to Pink Panther cartoons, A Cat in Paris is an extraordinary animation that is “a symphony of music and colors” according to Le Monde. The cat in the title is Dino, who leads a double life. During the day, he lives with Zoé, whose mother is a police detective. During the night, he clambers on the dark alleys of Paris in the company of Nico, a very skilful burglar. Dino’s two worlds collide when one night Zoé decides to follow him on his nocturnal adventures only to come across Victor Costa, a dangerous gangster. A breathless chase will ensue now over the rooftops of Paris! Inspired by film noir, A Cat in Paris premiered at the Berlin Film Festival.

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
