A Summer + 50

Key participants discuss the making of influential cinéma vérite documentary Chronicle of a Summer. Includes unused footage from the film.

Documentary 2010 75 mins

Director: Florence Dauman


Fifty years after Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin’s original experiment in cinéma vérite, Chronicle of a Summer, Florence Daumon – daughter of the film’s producer – interviewed key participants. Their frank reflections on both the film and their younger selves shed new light on the film and are combined with fascinating footage that didn’t make the final cut of Chronicle of a Summer.
