About This Event

1962 > France > Directed by James Blue\ With Pierre Prothon, Jean Pelegri, Marie Decaître\ Influential American documentarian James Blue\'s only narrative feature, drawn from Jean Pelegri\'s autobiographical novel, was shot in Algiers during the Algerian War. The story unfolds as Jean returns home to visit his dying father and recalls his childhood. \"His memories of boyhood on his father\'s farm are told in flashbacks with a lush serenity that contrasts to the teeming, tank-filled streets of contemporary Algiers.\" (Kino Lorber) The film was the inaugural winner of the Critics Prize at Cannes (1962) and was recently restored. Subtitled. With a pre-recorded intro by Richard Herskowitz, former Cornell Cinema director, who works on the James Blue Project and was involved with the film’s restoration.
