Of Castles and Crepes: A Documentary of French History and Culture

I am thrilled to announce that this Summer I will be heading back to France to film:
Of Castles and Crepes: A Documentary of French History and Culture.

I am able to announce this because of La Maison Française de Cleveland and their generous support of this work.

This film will document an expedition to 20 castles around France. These castles have been chosen from those I have visited on my previous expeditions and selected based on their geographical, historical, and cultural significance with the goal of giving the viewers the widest possible vision of France. The film is part history, part travelogue, and part cultural expose in order to entice the viewers to learn more and to visit France from themselves. The feature length (90-120 minute) film will be in English, however some interviews will be in French with English subtitles. The final film will be screened locally, produced and distributed on DVD, and made available for viewing online.

The 20 Castle Destination Includes:

Chateau de Chantilly
Gross Tour Du Roi in Compiegne
Chateau de Pierrefonds
Chateau de La Roche Guyon
Mont Saint Michel
Chateau d’Angers
Chateau de Saumur
Chateau de Langeais
Chateau d’Azay-le-Rideau
Chateau de Villandry
Chateau de Chenonceau
Chateau de Bouilh
Chateau de Peyrepertuse
Chateau d’If
Chateau de Rocamadour
Chateau de Louvre
Chateau de Versailles

This list is tentative and is subject to change.

I will post planning updates regularly.

I want to say Thanks again to La Maison Française de Cleveland!
