Across nearly every medium Disney has touched, since the earliest days of animation, through innovations in live-action filmmaking, pioneering efforts in television, location-based entertainment and retail, and even gaming—one creative aspect of Disney has been seldom-recognized, but ever-present: that of costume design.
This exhibition explores nearly six decades of films produced by The Walt Disney Studios, Walt Disney Television, and Disney Theatrical Group, in an effort share with guests the level of craftsmanship and artistry required to produce every costume presented across stage and screen. Incorporating 79 costumes from 32 films, and representing 24 different designers worn by 71 different actors, Heroes & Villains: The Art of the Disney Costume exhibition will prove to be truly unique and magical experience for guests of all ages.
The photographer, filmmaker and artist, Agnès Varda, spent 70 years creating a personal work which was fundamentally rooted in its time. She was a trailblazer of the New Wave movement and one of the rare women of her generation to have had a successful career as a filmmaker.
Her filmography boasts over forty short and feature-length films between fiction and documentary, including her greatest hits, Cléo from 5 to 7 (Cléo de 5 à 7) (1962), Le Bonheur (which won the Louis Delluc Prize in 1965), Vagabond (Sans toit ni loi) (which won a Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1985) and The Gleaners and I (Les Glaneurs et la glaneuse) (2000).
Her early interest in painting and literature, along with her experience in theatre, strongly shaped her conception of the seventh art. A globetrotter and artist of conviction, Varda also paid close attention to the world and social upheavals. The themes of feminism, ecology and marginality transect her work, making it very relevant to the modern day.
Aiming to reignite respect for our essential and complex biosphere, Our Time on Earth explores different ways of existing on Earth, particularly in the face of the climate crisis.

A journey through immersive, interactive installations and digital works, the exhibition is an exploration of radical ideas for the way we live. Where technology brings us closer to nature, and indigenous insight reconnects us to our roots. Enter the story of our future, with perspectives spanning art, science, activism and more.

Forty years after her death, Romy Schneider (23 September 1938 – 29 May 1982) is still just as well-liked and popular. The European actress started her career in Germany aged 15 and then continued in France, becoming a star through films that have forever marked the history of cinema, alongside Alain Cavalier, Claude Sautet, Luchino Visconti, Orson Welles, Otto Preminger and more.
This exhibition is the first at La Cinémathèque Française to be dedicated to an actress, and will also show how Romy Schneider’s career wrote a page in the history of cinema at this time and in the history of the great filmmakers around the world, whether French, American, Italian, German or Austrian. She was constantly searching for the absolute, which doubtlessly contributed to her genius and grace.
The exhibition will be an opportunity for her to speak for herself. We can try to bring her back to life through her roles, but also through her texts, interviews, diary and behind-the-scenes documentaries where we see her as ever vibrant and joyful, truly happy to be doing her job.
With such a glamourous life of abrupt reinventions and life-changing encounters, this exhibition will seek to understand how she became this icon of a modern woman, who, forty years after her death, still gets people’s hearts racing, and whose image has not aged one bit.
Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s conceptual virtual reality experience CARNE y ARENA (Virtually present, Physically invisible) explores the human condition of immigrants and refugees.
Based on true accounts, the superficial lines between subject and bystander are blurred and bound together, allowing individuals to walk in a vast space and thoroughly live a fragment of the refugees’ personal journeys. An immersive installation that reunites frequent collaborators Iñárritu and Emmanuel Lubezki alongside producer Mary Parent and ILMxLAB, CARNE y ARENA is a twenty-minute solo journey centered around a virtual reality sequence experienced by three concurrent visitors in separate rooms that employs state-of-the-art immersive technology to create a multi-narrative light space with human characters. CARNE y ARENA premiered at the 70th Cannes Film Festival as the first virtual reality project to be featured in the festival’s history. It was presented for the first time in its extensive full version at Fondazione Prada in Milan.
“During the making of this project, I had the privilege of meeting and interviewing many Mexican and Central American refugees,” Iñárritu said. “Their life stories haunted me, so I invited some of them to collaborate with me on the project. My intention was to experiment with VR technology to explore the human condition in an attempt to break the dictatorship of the frame—within which things are just observed—and claim the space to allow the visitor to go through a direct experience walking in the immigrants’ feet, under their skin, and into their hearts.”
Five-time Academy Award-winning director Alejandro G. Iñárritu was presented a special Oscar® in 2017 for CARNE y ARENA, recognized by the Academy as an exceptional storytelling experience.
