On Monday 31 March, on TV5, there will be a documentary about Pascal Jeanjean, alumnus of the department (class of 1988). He is a master papermaker. This interview with him gives a great account of what it is to really decide what you would want to do with your life, and includes this delightful insight:

As a literary person who also loves the visual arts, and who is interested in books, I have always been aware of paper as a base, a support. There is a relation between the base and the contents. We choose our paper depending on what we want to write, and this choice is generally an unconscious one.

The documentary is on TV5 Monde, Monday 31 March, 16:25-17:00.
