The fascinating result of a collaboration between filmmaker-anthropologist Jean Rouch and sociologist Edgar Morin, this vanguard work of what Morin termed "cinema-verite" is a brilliantly conceived and realized sociopolitical diagnosis of the early sixties in France.
Simply by interviewing a group of Paris residents in the summer of 1960--beginning with the provocative and eternal question "Are you happy?" and expanding to political issues, including the ongoing Algerian War--Rouch and Morin reveal the hopes and dreams of a wide array of people, from artists to factory workers, from an Italian emigre to an African student. CHRONICLE OF A SUMMER's penetrative approach gives us a document of a time and place with extraordinary emotional depth.
