Chronicle of a Summer DVD Product Description

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play. 

In the summer of 1960 anthropologist filmmaker Jean Rouch (Moi, un noir, Les Maîtres fous) and sociologist Edgar Morin set out to chronicle the everyday lives of Parisians using a mixture of intimate interviews, debates and observation. Artists, factory workers, office employees, students and others open up to the camera to share their experiences, fears and aspirations. The result became one of the most influential films of the sixties and redefined the documentary form.

Rouch, whose work inspired the likes of Jean-Luc Godard, Jacques Rivette and Roberto Rossellini, trained his ethnographic lens on the metropolis, recording a series of extraordinary sequences, including a French survivor s Holocaust testimony, to reveal the political underlying the personal in a society struggling into the post-colonial era.
