Perhaps no other filmmaker knows more about the history and culture of French cinema than Bertrand Tavernier. Incisive, intelligent, and deeply humanistic, Tavernier’s films illuminate personal and social relationships and suggest fresh interpretations of the past, while percolating with some of the most memorable performances in contemporary cinema. Tavernier makes films to learn about the world. They are challenges to himself and have been praised by the various communities they describe—diplomats, detectives, schoolteachers, jurists, jazz musicians, and historians, among others.

On the occasion of the release of his latest film My Journey Through French Cinema on Friday June 23, the Quad Cinema will celebrate Bertrand Tavernier throughout a retrospective from June 20 to June 29, and throughout "Tavernier Treasures", a film series of some of the filmmaker's favorite movies. Bertrand Tavernier will appear in person at several screenings.
