Monaco in films – Cine-Conference: Monaco and the sea

The latest work by ‘Monaco in films’ will follow the theme Monaco and the sea, exploring the Principality’s growth as a seaside resort and its relationship with water sports and marine research. The event, to be held at the Grimaldi Forum, will show various cinema on the topic.

‘Monaco in films’ was launched more than 20 years ago and is the historical label of the Audiovisual Archives, now known as the Monaco Audiovisual Institute. Through various exhibitions, it shows how Monaco has been represented in various forms of cinema and aims to give, through editing and commentary, a better cross-reading of history.

Since 2014, this label has been available in ‘cine-conferences’ in close collaboration with the Archives of the Palace of Monaco. After Albert Ist in Films, Rainier III in Films, the Invention of Monte-Carlo, and The Archives Tell Their 20 Years’ Story, the theme chosen for this new exploration is Monaco and The Sea.

Wedged between the sea and the mountains, Monaco has had to remodel its shoreline through the years in order to turn its territory, naturally a port of refuge, into a seaside resort, an area of sports competitions, a centre of scientific marine research, and a marina. It is the story of a Principality turned towards the sea that this cine-conference will tell and put in perspective through the strength of its archives.

The cine-conference will be held at 7pm on 7th June.
