Opening of the "Beat Generation" exibit at the Centre Pompidou

A young woman who has recently arrived in the capitol—the feminine incarnation of Rubempré in Balzac's Illusions perdues—crosses paths with William Burroughs. Scene 3 of Olivier Cadiot's Providence who himself once met the American poet. For the opening of the Beat Generation exhibit, Laurent Poitrenaux and Clotilde Hesme undertake a reading with several voices and "sound" of Providence. Benoît Delbecq calls up the musical "secret heroes" of the Beat Generation: Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk.
