Journal de France, Raymond Depardon, Francia, 2012, 100’
Depardon, Varda, Wiseman: three looks by three documentary makers whose names are in themselves classics in the history of cinema. There is a very simple connection between the work of Depardon and the work of Varda: all of Depardon’s work has to do with his work as a photographer. And the first films by Agnès Varda are entirely influenced by her documentary gaze from her first steps as a photographer. We’ll have the chance to know her two first films, that would help us understand the importance of her more than 60 years professional career. In the case of Wiseman, his work is key to understanding the history of American documentary cinema. For this cycle, we shall recover his much acclaimed first feature, which will allows us establish historical, thematic and style connections between these three great masters of observation.
