The House of Nod, a film production company based in Brooklyn NY, will be using the opportunity presented by our festival week to make a film about Miller and his time in Paris. The folks gathering around Shakespeare & Co., at our 80th-Anniversary-of-the-Publication-of “Tropic of Cancer”  at Dorothy’s Gallery, our Soirée Chez Jenny, and all the places Miller went that are still alive and well throughout the city will provide inspiration and content – we look forward to being followed by the camera!
