Portrait of a bookstore as an old man

Gonzague Pichelin and Benjamin Sutherlan, France, 2001, 52', OVSS.

In 1951, the exiled American George Whitman opened a
bookstore/commune in Paris. Called Shakespeare and Company in honour of
Sylvia Beach's legendary bookstore of the 1920s, it has played host to
such literati as Allen Ginsberg, Anaïs Nin, Henry Miller and James
Baldwin. On the occasion of its fiftieth anniversary, the directors
portray its peculiar owner, who continues to manage this legendary
Parisian meeting point.
