Paris, the City of Light
PARIS, THE CITY OF LIGHT (FULL LENGTH HD VERSION) from Trak on Vimeo.
"Paris, City of Light doesn't mean "the city with a lot of beautiful lights" but, rather, "the city where, during the eighteenth century, the lights of science (with the biologists like Buffon or Jussieu and with the encyclopedy writers like Diderot or d'Alembert) and the lights of philosophy (Voltaire, Rousseau, Condorcet, Montesquieu, ...) have been lit."
I've watched this video a few times already, and I thought I'd share it here. It's so beautiful and magical.
