Considered as a model of editing, Paris 1900 is a documentary by Nicole Védrès which draws on footage from over 700 films to chronicle Belle Epoque Paris from 1900 to 1914. It’s a fascinating account of the cultural, technological and social progress of the era, documenting the 1900 Paris Exhibition, the completion of the Eiffel Tower and the variety of Parisian life on the eve of the Great War.
