UPDATE: Following the announcement made by the Prime Minister at midday regarding the ban on gatherings of upwards of 100 people, all public screenings and meetings linked with the Cinéma du réel Festival are now cancelled. Badgeholders can, however, watch the competition films via the event's online videotheque at Festival Scope, Tënk, Mediapart and UniversCiné (read about the details here).

Last night saw Babette Mangolte’s French-American co-production Calamity Jane & Delphine Seyrig, A Story open (as a prologue) the 42nd Cinéma du Réel Festival (scheduled to unspool in Paris’s Pompidou Centre from 13 to 22 March) against the rather peculiar backdrop of the Coronavirus epidemic and the progressive strengthening of precautionary measures adopted by the French government (namely the closure of schools and universities as of this Monday, even though gatherings of upwards of 1,000 people are still the only events to be cancelled for now). It would seem, therefore, as the festival’s director general Catherine Bizern emphasised last night at the event, that "Cinéma du réel is withstanding reality, but it’s withstanding through adaptation".

Standing out on the agenda is an international competition section consisting of 13 feature films, including six productions or co-productions of European origin: The Year of the Discovery [+lee también:
