In 2009, the IFI commissioned Sarah Pierce to engage in a period of research in the IFI Irish Film Archive. The research, of which Chronique d’un éte was a central part, has culminated in an exhibition at NCAD throughout October.

“One of the first cinema verité films, it proposes a relationship between sociology and filmmaking, anthropology and documentation, where we immerse ourselves in a subject and by doing so we change it. The filmmakers enlisted a cast of ‘real’ characters – students, office workers, factory workers, artists, and families – to portray everyday life in Paris. I first saw this film as a university student in a class called Russian 20s / French 60s. It is part of my ‘personal canon’ – an archive of films that I return to again and again.” Sarah Pierce.

This screening will be introduced by Sarah Pierce.
