Heroic Cinematograph

by Laurent Veray et Agnès de Sacy


Made from selected First World War footage, the film presents the war diaries of two camera operators– one Frenchman, one German - filming the war on each side of the battle front.

It recounts the adventure of the pioneers who invented the news film… and discovered the questions it rises.
