Objectif Festival

Date produced: 1964

Filmmaker(s):

Jacques Chalmandrier

Description:

"Objectif Festival is a story based - on truth or not, we don't know - of an old photographer who decides to bring his camera, tripod and all, the to the Cannes Film Festival to get a few still shots. He is not prepared for the fast shooting shutterbugs of today, nor the Bikini clad French dolls that litter the beaches. Time has passed him by in more ways than one. The film has been cleverly cut to fit its musical score, and this unusual editing has earned for the film the MPD Golden Scissors Award for the best film editing in the contest" PSA Journal, Sept. 1964, 50-51.

Date produced: 1964

Filmmaker(s):

Helen C. Welsh

"George Kiehl's visit to Paris took him to many of the places of interest in the visitor. His fast moving travelog takes us through the main streets and some of the old sophisticated areas. We begin with the landmark of the 1889 Exhibition, followed by fountains, facades, monuments of marble and bronze, parades, tired souls asleep on the street, art centers, castles, water excursions, and, not to forget, Moulin Rouge and other night spots with choice centers of attraction" PSA Journal, Nov. 1958, 48.

Vieille France

Date produced: 1937

Filmmaker(s):

Luc Fauvel

Description:

"Luc Fauvel is a Norman, and he turned to his own pays to contrive as sensitive and trenchant a study of French provincial life, in miniature, done by the medium of film, as did giants like Flaubert and de Maupassant through the medium of words. His Vieille France has irony, pathos, humor and plain reporting. It is the tale of an old bonnet maker of Normandy, who goes through her daily tasks, in which she has grown old, but who, at the end of the labor, reviews the past, by means of her photograph album, and meditates on her son, who died on the field of honor in the World War, and on her daughter who has become a great dancer and is far removed from the little Norman village of her origin. Mr. Fauvel accomplishes most by suggestion, by indirect statement and by a kind of insidious comment on life, never more than fleetingly presented. This young Frenchman, now studying at Cambridge, in England, will give us better and more technically well knit pictures as times goes on." Movie Makers, Dec. 1937, 630.
