Among the movies selected at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, at least twelve of them were shot with Angénieux lenses. And four got an award.
For quite some time, Angénieux has been thinking of doing a book to trace the incredible rise of the Angénieux brand, since the creation of the company in 1935 by Pierre Angénieux. The dream has actually come true…
