Discovering Père-Lachaise Cemetery: Eternal Gardens
Arguably the best TV station in France (and probably beyond), Arte.tv is currently running a new documentary about Père Lachaise through December 31, 2018.
The documentary is in French. It is also available with either French, English, German, Italian, Spanish or Polish subtitles. Dubbing in German and French closed-captioning is also available.
The Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris is famous as being the final resting place of great figures such as Oscar Wilde, Marcel Proust and Jim Morrison. But it is also a surprisingly diverse natural habitat, a hidden biosphere in the heart of Paris.
Available from November 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018
Director: Christophe d’Yvoire and Augustin Viatte
The green side of Père Lachaise
Of course there’s an app for that
If this documentary inspires you to explore the greener side of Père Lachaise, you might be interested in the app Balades Paris Durable. There are several green walks in Paris on the app, one of which is dedicated to Père Lachaise. You can also see the itinerary of the Père Lachaise walk on the Paris City website.
