Critics reviews

This compilation of short film essays directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, Federico Fellini and four other soon-to-be-prominent Italian directors, is of great historical significance: a precursor to Lionel Rogosin’s staged documentaries, as well as the founding work of cinéma vérité, Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin’s “Chronicle of a Summer” (1961), not to mention the American television reportage of the 1960s.
