Brief synopsis

    The idea was simple yet hard to implement: to ask young European directors to explore Paris with their video cameras and to capture personal visions of the city.
    Considering the division of Paris in 20 districts, why not invite 20 countries? A different country, a different film, for each district.
    Living all in Europe, these young directors were citizens of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Finland, France, Germany, Great-Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Macedonia, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, but also Kazakhstan, Peru, or South Korea.
    From hunting for a location to editing, they had 5 days, from the 28th of August to the 1st of September 2006 -during the celebration of NISI MASA's 5th anniversary, to create their short documentaries. Compiled their films constitute a unique patchwork, a different perspective of an all too familiar city.
