Proustiana is the name we have given to short films on interesting aspects of Proust's life and works. The inspiration for this was the first ten such shorts that we created to accompany lectures in the online course. Our subscribers encouraged us to make additional ones. These and other digital films, beginning with Proustiana 11, will be made available as they are produced.
