World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: DOCUMENTARIES

The very first motion pictures were documentaries (or “actualities,” as they were called then), such as the Lumiere Brothers’ “L'arrivée d'un train en gare de La Ciotat” from 1895. Since its modest beginnings the documentary form has enjoyed a fruitful history, and the genre still attracts distinguished filmmakers who believe that truth is every bit as compelling as fiction.

Triumph of the Will was commissioned by Hitler in 1934 and covers the events of the Sixth Nuremberg Party Congress. The original intention was to document the early days of the NSDAP so that future generations could look back and see how the Third Reich began. In reality Triumph of the Will shows historians how the Nazi state drew in the masses through propaganda and also how Adolf Hitler had a unique and terrifying ability to entice crowds to his beliefs by the very power of his words.
8:00 PM
The adventures of a young Cajun boy and his pet raccoon, whose life changes when an oil derrick is placed near his house.
<p>
(USA 1949. B&W, 78 mins, dir. Robert J. Flaherty, with Joseph Boudreaux, Lionel Le Blanc & E. Bienvenu)
9:20 PM
A surrealistic documentary portrait of the region of Las Hurdes, a remote region of Spain where civilization has barely developed, showing how the local peasants try to survive without even the most basic utilities and skills.
(Spain, 1932, B&W, 28 mins, dir. Luis Bunuel, Documentary, Spanish with English subtitles)
