Synopsis:
In the first quarter of the 20th century Paris was the undisputed cultural capital of the world. It was also the meeting place for a new generation of independent women, who literally flocked to the West Bank of Paris and made it their home. Authors Colette, Djuna Barnes and Gertrude Stein joined painters Romaine Brookes and Marie Laurencin, photographers Bernice Abbott and Giselle Freund, publishers and booksellers Sylvia Beach and Adrienne Monnier and journalist Janet Flanner and together they created a now legendary community.
Using groundbreaking research, newly discovered home movies combined with other visual sources this intimate documentary intertwines interview and anecdote to recreate the mood and flavour of this exceptional female artistic community in Paris during its most magical era.
