Learning from Paris

I'm spending the summer in Paris, soaking up inspiration for my Curious Minds Morning Speaker series, "Learning from Paris", presented by Hotdocs in Toronto this fall. I'll be discussing what we can learn from 1,000 years of Paris art, food, and revolution.

The series starts September 18, at the excellently-renovated Hotdocs cinema on Bloor--which gives me an excuse to include some brief clips from my favourite Paris films (including a few minutes of "Paris Blues", where Sidney Poitier & Paul Newman stroll through the great Belly of Paris, Les Halles, in 1961.)
