Paper Screen – Opus I : Thriller

Adaptations from best sellers to a film is now a current process, but the question is :
Is the movie faithful to the work and what
does “faithful” mean?

Paper Screen retraces the artistic journey of literary works into film. Starting with the original work and the novels impact on the
adaption to its film version. Our aim is to give the public a chance to rediscover the books and the movies under a new light:
to show how one inspired the other. We will cross portraits between the authors, writers and directors to give a specific direction for each documentary.
This is a 6 X 52’ documentary series, each addressing a different literary genre.


Over time, thriller has become an extremely popular literary and film genre, as successful 
in bookshop as in the cinema. Thanks to authors and filmmakers such as Steven Spielberg, 
Roman Polanski or Jean-Jacques Annaud, we discover the story of these adaptations.
