Defining the MomentVideo Cassette - 1999
The cinema verite (or direct cinema) movement of the '50s and '60s was driven by a group of rebel filmmakers tired of stilted documentaries. They wanted to show life as it really is: raw, gritty, dramatic. Rich in excerpts from verite classics with commentary by filmmakers, this is the first film to capture all the excitement of a revolution that changed movie-making forever, with its influences in everything from TV news to music videos to Webcams.
