Film shooting at the Sorbonne in Paris
Wiifilm – in a co-production with Le Bureau des Curiosités – was on set to shoot L’Exposée, a short film dedicated to Eunice Newton Foote – the American scientist who discovered the greenhouse effect in the 19th Century. The crew was initially welcomed by the Faculty of Pharmacy in Paris to shoot scientific experimentation scenes in the greenhouse, before welcoming a group of extras/students in an amphitheatre of the Sorbonne. L’Exposée – written and directed by Sonia Delhaye – alternates between contemporary sequences and reenactments of the 19th century. It was also an opportunity to work with costume designer Erwan de Fligué, who plays the character of Eunice’s supportive husband: Elisha Foote.
