Cinematographer Caroline Champetier: Shaping the Light

Series Site

The orchestrator of lighting and camerawork on more than 100 films, Champetier's art is often felt as much as it is seen. She has a rare ability to shape light to create palpable energy, evoke powerful emotions, and transform movie sets into fully-realized worlds. Champetier is the cinematographer behind some of France’s greatest filmmakers, past and present. A student of William Lubtchantsky, she has worked with generations of pioneering filmmakers from Jean-Luc Godard and Jacques Rivette to Chantal Akerman, Arnaud Desplechin, and Léos Carax. - French Institute Alliance Française
