Documentary Moments - Take 4

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 this 4th take of the Documentary Moments, Eyal Sivan introduces Marcel Ophuls' use of the documentary interview and montage to review and re-edit historical narration, subverting the hegemony of authority. His epic oeuvre – both in scope and in length – is a landmark of the critical historical essay. /
