Multi-award-winning French director, Jean-Jacques Annaud’s, NOTRE DAME ON FIRE, distributed in South Africa by Videovision Entertainment, will premiere on M-Net Movies 1 (Channel 104 on DSTV) at 14h00 on Friday, 14 July to coincide with the French National Day, popularly referred to as Bastille Day.
NOTRE DAME ON FIRE is an immersive narrative with firefighters at the heart of the action. The film offers a blow-by-blow recreation of the gripping events that took place on April 15, 2019, when the Notre Dame cathedral suffered the biggest blaze in its history. The film retraces how heroic men and women put their lives on the line to accomplish an awe-inspiring rescue. NOTRE DAME ON FIRE stars Samuel Labarthe, Jean-Paul Bordes, Mickaël Chirinian.
Sanjeev Singh, Videovision Entertainment’s Director of Acquisition and Distribution commented, “We are delighted to have DSTV premiere NOTRE DAME ON FIRE on Bastille Day. It is fitting as the Notre Dame Cathedral is a national treasure of France. Jean-Jacques has crafted an amazing film which authentically captures the events around the burning of the cathedral and brings to the fore the heroic efforts of the firefighters who took grave risks to save the historic building.”
Jean-Jacques Annaud visited South Africa last November to present NOTRE DAME ON FIRE at the South African premiere which was hosted by Videovision Entertainment in partnership with The French Institute and the French Embassy.
