23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
The Village Pleasure
Or, how to become a Frenchman in a few lessons. It’s the essence of cinéma vérité, combining an essayistic approach with an effort to capture raw reality in all its truth, but at the same time, we’re watching a documentary version of The Firemen’s Ball in the French countryside.
François Reichenbach (1921-1993) addressed topics such as the relationship of France and the USA in his work and shot portraits of renowned international artists. He received the Palm d’Or at Cannes for La doucer du village.
