He Came into the World in Le Cateau. Like Me.

On December 31, 1869, Henri Matisse was born in Le Cateau-Cambrésis, at the home of his maternal grandparents. This film tells the story of people who were born in Le Cateau-Cambresis, like Matisse. We interviewed each person about their daily life and asked them to share a story related to birth. The film was installed in a covered market next to the Matisse Museum and made visible to passersby.
