Synopsis

The story of the cinéma vérité movement and its on-going influence upon documentary filmmaking. Guided by two key factors - the increasing availability of lightweight camera equipment and an aesthetic commitment to capturing reality in its raw immediacy - the movement gave rise to the groundbreaking filmmakers D.A.Pennebaker, Jean Rouch, Richard Leacock and Frederick Wiseman, and produced such classics as 'Primary', 'Don't Look Back' and 'Salesmen', all of which are featured here.
