CHRONIQUE D'UN ÉTÉ
(CHRONICLE OF A SUMMER)
Directed by :
, Edgar MORIN
Year of production : 1960
Country : FRANCE Length : 91 minutes
In 1960, Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin undertook a new approach to documentary filmmaking, by posing direct questions such as "How's your life going ? How do you manage ?"
Both the filmmakers and their subjects (men and women of all ages) share in the experience of "cinema vérité" thus raising basic questions about the nature of happiness - particularly the inevitable tension between the poetic and trivial facets of our existence.
