Catacombs of Paris: an underground society

Written and directed by Marc Planeilles

52 minutes

The documentary will be broadcasted on October 30th by France 3 Paris Ile-de-France


Thrill lovers, photographers, painters or historians, about hundreds of people go down regularly in the 300 kilometres of tunnels that constitute the catacombs of Paris.

With its customs, culture, means of communication, but also its tensions between different communities, the way cataphiles’ world works comes close to the one of an authentic society.
