(JEAN ROUCH, FRANCE, 1961, 12)

The pioneering documentary that launched the cine-verité movement paints
a dizzying, breathless portrait of the lives of a diverse cross-section
of Parisians in the Summer of 1960. Taking their camera out into the
streets of Paris to document the experiences of factory workers,
students, immigrants and young holocaust survivors alike, Jean Rouch and
Edgar Morin yield startling insights about the lives of diverse
communities in Paris, to conjure a profound, sprawling meditation upon
the nature of happiness. The film will be introduced with Parisian
chansons from Coreen Scott.
