Jeremy Thomas, producer of Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor (1987), makes a yearly land-and-sea pilgrimage to the Cannes Film Festival, traveling from London in an old sports car, often with one or two close friends in tow. This time director Mark Cousins is along for the ride, filming as they go. Their off-beat grand tour takes in landmarks and people connected to the producer's life and films—from the locations in Paris used in Bertolucci’s The Dreamers (2003) to Lyon, the birthplace of cinema, and on to the festival on the French Riviera.
