The result of collaboration between filmmaker-anthropologist Jean Rouch and sociologist Edgar Morin, this work of what Morin would term cinema verite is a sociopolitical diagnosis of the early sixties in France. By interviewing a group of Paris residents in the summer of 1960, Rouch and Morin reveal the hopes and dreams of a wide array of people and give us a document of a time and place with extraordinary depth.
