  "Raise the Red Lantern": An Arte Exclusive 

Arte is giving you an exclusive invitation to watch "Raise the Red Lantern", the channel’s latest "Short Cuts" show.

The "Short Cuts" on Arte Court-circuit is a collection of animated shorts created by various filmmakers giving a summarized interpretation of cinema classics.

Arte is presenting an exclusive look at Zhang Yimou’s Raise the Red Lantern, adapted into animation by Hefang Wei in collaboration with Izù Troin. This choice is also a great way to echo China as Annecy 2017’s guest country.

Throughout Festival week, you will also have the chance to see these "Short Cuts" from Arte Court-circuit on the big screen as they will be shown before the Annecy Classics programmes.

On the programme:

  • Heaven’s Gate by Michael Cimino, animated by Stéphanie Cadoret
  • French Cancan by Jean Renoir, animated by Theodore Ushev
  • In the Realms of the Senses, animated by Franck Dion
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick, animated by Zaven Najjar
  • The Pianist by Roman Polanski, animated by Franck Dion
  • The Leopard by Luchino Visconti, animated by Marie de Lapparent
  • Jour de fête by Jacques Tati, animated by Zaven Najjar

A perfect occasion to see some classic films from an animated angle!
