Chronicle of a Summer (1961)
Another "life caught unawares" film that is directly influenced by Man with a Movie Camera
mentioned as a film about concentration camps, one of the African boys have seen
Mentioned in conversation of Jean Rouch with Joris Ivens and Henri Storck.
Like in "Chronique d'un été" the main character walks around the streets asking people if they are happy, and if so, what they consider happiness to be. This is clearly a reference to the "cinema-verité" dogma of Jean Rouch.
Max erroneously credits Jean Cocteau rather that Jean Rouche for the term Cinema Verite.
