Uccello ! The battle of San Romano (52 mn)

This film is a journey through time with Professor James Blœdé, of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, to the heart of Paolo Uccello’s most cinematographic tryptic of the Italian Renaissance, a 15th Centuary masterpiece.
More than a lesson in art history, more than a lecture about an artist’s painted work, this documentary, a pictorial analysis, is an invitation to cultivate the eye.
The beauty of the whole painting will reveal itself, allowing the discovery of the painter’s innovative talent which has paved the way for others: the work on decomposition of movement, which assimilates the artist to the first cinematographers, techniques used to facilitate the interpretation of paintings, the passionate study of perspective and geometric shapes, the dazzling rendering of the material, not to mention curvilinear perspective or anamorphosis, which were invented by Uccello and theorized later by the young da Vinci.
So many elements would elude us were we to content ourselves to just a stroll through the museum...

June 1944 : In the midst of the Liberation, 800 deportees were transported from French camps to Germany. Due to the Allies’ bombing and Resistants’ attacks, the railway was in such bad shape that the journey across France took 57 days. The deportees even had to walk at some occasions and were seen by several eye witnesses. The journey ended in Dachau and more than half of the deportees never came back.
