Paris: Cinéma sur l’eau

This is SURELY one of the coolest and most relevant ways to watch Ang Lee’s ‘Life of Pi’! When the film was first screened in France in December 2012, cinema goers flocked to Paris’ Piscine Pailleron indoor swimming pool to watch it in 3-D, whilst sitting in lifeboats floating on water. The live-action, computer-animated drama (an adaption of the book by Yann Martel) tells the story of a young Indian man called Pi, who becomes stranded on a lifeboat in the Pacific Ocean with a tiger. These lucky viewers were able to really throw themselves into the storyline and spirit of the film – never mind the potential discomfort of having to sit on a backless bench for 2 hours, a minor detail in the grander scheme of watching a film in a lifeboat that’s floating on the surface of an indoor swimming pool.
