With its diverse portfolio of guests from the English playwright Tom Stoppard to psychoanalyst Elisabeth Roudinesco from designer to screenwriter Neil Gaiman Argentinian Lucrecia Martel, the FLIPconfirms more than ever the vocation for a cosmopolitan market of all kinds of ideas expressed through the written word.
