Jacques Demy’s ability to enchant audiences was rooted in his personal struggles and doubts as a showman, establishing him as one of French cinema’s greatest artists.

Written by Frédéric Bonnaud, the Director of the Cinémathèque Française, and directed by Florence Platarets (Godard by Godard, official selection at Cannes Classics in 2023), this documentary stands as the first comprehensive portrayal of the esteemed Jacques Demy. Producers Rosalie Varda and Mathieu Demy, Jacques Demy’s children, have, for the first time, granted filmmakers exclusive access to their family archives.
