Synopsis
Few films can claim as much influence on the course of cinema history as Chronicle of a Summer. The fascinating result of a collaboration between filmmaker-anthropologist Jean Rouch and sociologist Edgar Morin, this vanguard work of what Morin termed cine´ma- ve´rite´ is a brilliantly conceived and realized sociopolitical diagnosis of the early sixties in France. Simply by interviewing a group of Paris residents in the summer of 1960--beginning with the provocative and eternal question Are you happy? and expanding to political issues, including the ongoing Algerian War--Rouch and Morin reveal the hopes and dreams of a wide array of people, from artists to factory workers, from an Italian e´migre´ to an African student. Chronicle of a Summers penetrative approach gives us a document of a time and place with extraordinary emotional depth.
