This idea of a film to document artists and writers in Paris was an opportunity for me to examine the unpoliced language of politics and art. The Louvre provided an ideal setting for the dissemination of both art and theory to many new participants.

The Foreigner's Home developed toward a cultural polemic to open dialogue where none existed.
