Documentary Moments - Take 1
Conceived by film-maker Eyal Sivan, the long-term project “Documentary Moments” elaborates documentary film practice through screenings and encounters with film-makers who shaped particular moments of the practice’s history. Its initial chapter is an homage to artists who contributed to the renaissance of documentary film in the post-war period: Alain Resnais (b. 1921), Edgar Morin (b. 1921), Marcel Ophuls (b. 1928), and Frederick Wiseman (b. 1930).
In Take 1, Eyal Sivan discusses with Marie-José Mondzain and Adrian Rifkin Alain Resnais documentary practice and the narration of genocide, that Alain Resnais has created with Nuit et brouillard (Night and Fog), where he quintessentially demonstrates the use of images to establish an independent authority.
