Cinema – Fictions
 
In the Fictions series, the collaborative effort with filmmakers begun in the Cinéma – Monographs series also includes publishing their written work, their literary creations in the form of short stories, novels and tales for adults. These works reveal the extent to which artists who mainly focus on images are also driven to develop their own forms of writing.
