From the United States of Jane Fonda, her father Henry or Richard Thorpe... to the Europe of Henri Decoin, Jean-Luc Godard or Muriel Box, without forgetting Asia, Italy, Sweden and many others, the bookshop offers a true panorama of world cinema through biographies, graphic novels and critical analyses.

For those who like reading about movies as much as watching them, a special section proposes literary works adapted to the big screen featured at Lumière 2018: The Grapes of Wrath, No Country for Old Men, Nana, They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?, La Passante du Sans-Souci... find all the key authors at the village.

You can also check out back issues of Positif to review thematic topics of the cinephile magazine from Lyon.
