Regards documentaires

An exhibition of 12 posters

With Images en Bibliothèques
Text by Jean Breschand

The Bpi and the Images en Bibliothèques non-profit organisation have joined forces to organise an exhibition on documentary film. This exhibition features a series of 12 posters, full colour, in 70×120 cm format. Libraries have the opportunity to purchase it and it was launched for the 2006 Documentary Film Month. The aim of this exhibition is to promote documentary film, present its history, styles and authors, through some of its key questions – filming the past, observations of childhood, humans and work… All while giving elements of information and reflection, the exhibition is richly illustrated: frames or captioned photos of filming, etc.
