The Adventurers Of Modern Art

Midnight In Paris
Season 1 Episode 6 Arts August 24, 2017

World War Two erupts, and France mobilises its war effort. After the debacle of June 1940 and the Occupation of Nazi Germany, Europe is in tatters, and artists and intellectuals flee in droves. Old friends among those who stay behind are eventually torn apart. Some collaborate, some resist - many make do as they can, and others pay for their commitment with their lives. When the war at last is over, Paris reawakens to find that an astonishing work has been created from within its war-torn midst.
