To Be Young and in France

This guy was the diving champ at French overnight camp. And that’s just one of the wonderful things we had forgotten about France, until we rooted through our blog archives to get ready for our French TV debut on Arte this Sunday.

Other highlights include:

Jodi Foster at 15 in France

…that Jodie Foster spoke French (and rode a skateboard with parisian teens) as a teenager.

…that a 1960s teen parisian beauty queen imagined life in the USA (a la Godard) as “fast-paced” and “free”?


…that wading at the beaches of Brittany can wash your sins away.

…and that these were DJ Madeon’s 39 favorite tracks in 2012.

Teenage will be broadcast in France on Arte Sunday, June 29th. More places to watch here.
