Jean-Pierre Leaud On That Last Shot in "400 Blows"
Huffington Post - 3 months
I came upon Jean-Pierre Leaud sitting in a hotel lobby in Lisbon, alone in the twilight, and kneeled before him. "Could I please ask you what you see now when you look at that last shot of The 400 Blows?" In the last scene of Francois Truffaut's film, the boy Antoine, played by 14 year old Leaud, escapes from a reformatory and runs to the sea. In the last shot, he turns and faces the camera. "That is an excellent question," the seventy-two year old actor said immediately. "What do I see in that image? I see one of the most beautiful shots of cinema." "And what exactly do you see in the boy's look?" "I see mystery. I will tell you how that shot happened. Truffaut told me to run towards the sea, and then turn around. He gave me no other instructions. That's it. Run towards the sea and turn around! The camera took the shot. And it was perfect! I was neither too left nor too right. Neither too left nor too right!

Trio wins Nobel chemistry prize for 'world's smallest machines'
Yahoo News - 5 months
By Niklas Pollard and Kate Kelland STOCKHOLM/LONDON (Reuters) - A trio of European scientists has won the 2016 Nobel Prize for Chemistry for developing molecular machines that could one day be injected to fight cancer or used to make new types of materials and energy storage devices. Frenchman Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Scotland's J. Fraser Stoddart and Dutchman Bernard Feringa developed molecules that produce mechanical motion in response to a stimulus, allowing them to perform specific tasks, the Nobel Academy said on Wednesday in awarding the 8 million Swedish crown ($931,000) prize. Such molecular machines can be developed in smart medicines that seek out disease or damage and deliver drugs to fight or fix it, and in smart materials that can adapt in response to external triggers such as changes in light or temperature.

Yahoo News - 6 months
Acclaimed Belgian filmmakers Jean Pierre and Luc Dardenne will tell the story of an Islamist "fanatic" linked to jihadist attacks in their next film, the latter said in an interview. The brothers' new film, to be shot next year, comes after their native Belgium was rocked by the March 22 airport and subway bombings in Brussels, igniting national debate over home-grown Islamist extremism and how to counter it. "We've been thinking about it for years," he told AFP in Peru, where he was being honored at the 20th edition of the Lima film festival.

CPMC Gala Has 2020 Vision in Black and White
Huffington Post - 12 months
Medical issues are rarely black and white, but the super-chic party to build a new California Pacific Medical Center in 2020 was a gorgeous exception. With Chanel generously sponsoring CPMC2020 Gala in a transformed Pier 35, the evening was a visual and literal feast for the senses. Dressed-to-the-No. 19s guests were welcomed through an allee of green boxwood hedges to the enormous space, surrounded in black cloth and illuminated with globes of white light. White banquettes ringed the room, and long tables were set with white cloths and china, with candles and silver julep cups of white roses providing a flattering glow. Waiters passed hors d'oeuvres made to the exact specification of Quince chef Michael Tusk, and the champagne and cocktails flowed as if it were a Parisian soiree at the Ritz, where Coco Chanel once entertained. There was much colorful meeting and greeting among the soigne crowd, who hailed from the worlds of tech, finance, medicine and good old-fashioned philanthropy. ...

Huffington Post - about 1 year
Forbes' renowned 30 Under 30 lists were released yesterday and features a stellar selection of 600 individuals who are kicking butt in their respective fields, which include finance, education, consumer tech, sports, marketing and more.  Naturally we were eager to see who made the cut on the Art & Style list, and to our pleasant surprise two black fashion designers -- Azéde Jean-Pierre and Madison Maxey -- were mentioned this year. Considering fashion's glaring diversity problem, both on and off the runway, our delight is justifiable. While there are plenty designers of color creating noteworthy creations, a mere fraction of them actually make it to the market. Forbes' acknowledgment of these two design stars is a step in the right direction. In fact, the publication has been making it a habit.
