Bertrand Tavernier Discusses the Innovations of the Lumière Brothers.

Bertrand Tavernier is considered one of the most acclaimed French film makers since the New Wave artists appeared in the late 50s.

Probably his best known work to Americans is "Round Midnight." Tavernier is currently touring various cities as part of the Lumiere Institute's celebration of 100 years of motion pictures. Tavernier is president of the Institute.
