The “Cinema and History Encounters” will focus on the Great War through the prism of (inter)national perspectives, as it will question the French, German, American, Russian, and Italian points of view regarding the 1914-18 conflict.
Each projection will be followed by a conversation with a historian or a historian of cinema, who will put forward the aesthetic and historical stakes of the film.
Every year, the “Cinema and Hsitory Encounters" provides, within EntreVues, cross-disciplinary, artistic and scientific perspectives regarding the seventh art. This programme creates an original temporality within the festival, allowing participants to take the time to reflect on cinema as a historical object and a social mirror. The films, selected both for their aesthetic value and the importance of the historical stakes which they evoke, are presented by specialists of the matter.
Directed by Priska Morrissey and Laurent Heyberger.
In collaboration with the laboratory IRTES-RECITS of the Université de Technologie de Belfort-Montbéliard and the department of Performing Arts (Arts du spectacle) of the Université Rennes II.
