A child of the 18th arrondissement, legendary French indie rap band, La Rumeur, bears an undying affection for this neighbourhood. After almost 20 years on the music scene, the band has now turned its hand to film production. Since Spring 2015, its members have been working on “Mon Nom à Pigalle”, a feature film scheduled for release this autumn that explores the life of a bar on the boulevard de Clichy. During the shoot, Ekoué, Bavar and Hamé crossed paths with Le Pigalle team, who share their attachment to this unique neighbourhood of Paris. As the hotel regularly hosts cultural events that aim to reflect the diversity of the neighbourhood, the two teams had much in common, and working together seemed a natural outcome. The result will be a series of events in line with the band’s current activities. The programme at Le Pigalle will include a showcase, premiere, movie masterclass and discussions.
