Synopsis

The history of 'cinema verite' or 'cinema direct,' as it was known in France, is explored through interviews with many of the documentary genre's pioneers. Largely inspired by the invention of new lightweight cameras in the 1950's and 60s, cinema verite's trademark hand-held style went on to become widely assimilated into contemporary film and video practice.
