PREVIEW FOR LES EAUX DE VERSAILLES (THE WATERS OF VERSAILLES)
The Alliance Francaise de Hyderabad will present an assortment of documentary
films portraying various themes ranging from the life of the maintenance staff
working night and day in the world famous Eiffel Tower to the unfolding of the
eclipse of August 11, 1999, as part of its monthly Wednesday Video Club shows.
You get a chance to walk through the gardens of the Château de Versailles, Parc
Monceau, Les Buttes de Chaumont, Parc Montsouris etc.
Today, discover the gardens of the Château de Versailles, guided by the would-be voice of Louis the XIVth. The Sun-king leads a young visitor from fountain to fountain and introduces her to some of the Château's more fantastic occupants: gods, dragons, tritons, nymphs and other odd creatures. He unveils his dream of a Versailles 'bathed in endless flowing water', on which he puts to work an innumerable crew of engineers. The waters of Versailles thus remain eternally marked by the Sun-king's hand.
