Mesdames et Messieurs, presenting La Petite Mort, or, A Little Death ...


A silent film, destroyed in a fire in 1913 at the Pathé studio, before it was seen even by its director.


A lowly seamstress, who makes the costumes she should be wearing, but believes her talent - and the secret she keeps too - will soon get her a dressing room of her own.


A beautiful house in Paris, with a curving staircase, a lake, and locked rooms.


A famous - and dashing - creator of spectacular cinematic illusions, husband to a beautiful, volatile actress, the most adored icon of the Parisian studios.


All fit together, like scenes in a movie. And as you will see, this plot has a twist we beg you not to disclose ...
