Toute la Mémoire du Monde

Directed by Alain Resnais
France, 1956

Synopsis

With its long tracking shots through cavernous library hallways and its skeptical corresponding text, this film imagines the Bibliothèque Nationale as a forbiddingly inhuman landscape in which man attempts to imprison “knowledge” in an effort to counter the limits of his own memory.
