The Journey - 17 (50 mn)

Seventeenth episode

« The Journey » is a 14½ hour documentary film by Peter Watkins, made between the years 1983 and 1985 on several continents, released on film in 1987 at the Toronto Film Festival. It is structured around the theme of nuclear weapons, military spending and poverty. Ordinary people are asked about their awareness of these issues.
Peter Watkins spent eighteen months editing the more than 100 hours of footage he compiled, weaving together extended family interviews, documentation of the global arms race, recollections of survivors of the bombings in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Hamburg, community psychodramas of possible disaster scenarios, and works by other artists. The film is monumental both in its critique and analysis and in its effort to inspire and occasion new ways of using information and the media.
This global peace film was produced in 1983-86 by the Swedish Peace & Arbitration Society and local support groups in Sweden, Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, USSR, Mexico, Japan, Scotland, Polynesia, Mozambique, Denmark, France, Norway, West Germany, with post-production support from the National Film Board in Montreal, Canada.
It was screened at the Mexico City International Festival of Contemporary Cinema (FICCO) in February 2007. Between April 25 and May 1, 2007, all 19 parts of the film were screened at the Austrian Filmmuseum in Vienna.
The 5 DVD box set contains the 19 episodes of the series.

Victorine, 90 years of cinema in Nice

On the occasion of the revival of la Victorine, the only survivor amidst a few dozen film studios in Nice on the French Riviera, the time has come to have a closer look at its past: an adventurous and dramatic story. During the German occupation, Marcel Carné shot his “Children of Paradise” here – a masterpiece that was to become the symbol of the Liberation! In the Fifties, Alfred Hitchcock had Grace Kelly and Cary Grant star in “To catch a Thief”, and Gérard Philipe started his international career with “Fanfan la Tulipe”.
