About This Event

1983 > France > Directed by Georges Rouquier \ Thirty-seven years after Farrebique, Georges Rouquier returned to the farming community in South-central \ France to pick up the story of the Rouquier family who had been featured in his earlier film (showing on October 4 & 6). Produced by former Cornell Cinema director William Gilcher. "Rouquier films a world of agriculture—and a social life of farmers—that hardly resembles the one that he had filmed in the midnineteen-forties. Yet, despite the movie\'s broad purview, Rouquier maintains a documentary-based interest in the details of farm life (one notable subplot involves the harmful effects of modern pesticides on humans and wildlife) and in family relations. The film's ingenious conclusion…weaving the new film and the old one together offers one of the most moving endings, and one of the greatest last shots, in the history of cinema." (Richard Brody, The New Yorker) In French. Subtitled. Shown in a 35mm film print. Cosponsored with the French Studies Program. \ 1 hr 30 min \
