Since 2016, the Planche(s) Contact festival in Deauville gives Carte Blanche to a cultural personality who loves and practices photography in parallel to his own career. After agnès b. and Vincent Delerm, it's Claude Lelouch's turn to play the game.

For the tenth anniversary of Planche(s) Contact, the Carte Blanche has been entrusted to Claude Lelouch for whom Deauville is so central in his work.
Claude Lelouch knows how to film and sublimate women, gestures of love, "the music" and the beach of Deauville, like no one else. Un homme et une femme, marked generations and made the winters in Deauville famous all over the world, at the same time and as much as the "Da ba da ba da,ba da ba da ba" of Francis Lai and Pierre Barouh. The festival is pleased that he has agreed to share his Deauville, his impressions and his particular vision, as if it were a notebook or a sort of making of.
His images, both archival and more recent, as well as film excerpts, will be presented in the salons and rooms of the Villa Strassburger, which for the first time will host an exhibition and will be open to the public on the occasion of the festival.
Images of the film family, presented in a large family home.
