Part II

For “Chronicle of a Summer,” from 1960, which Rouch made with the sociologist Edgar Morin (who, happily, is still working—and is on Twitter), the method was turned inside out. The premise of the film is expressly documentary—a Parisian person-in-the-street survey—but the filmmakers reveal their sociological methods in advance, in a preliminary scene where they make their plans with the onscreen interviewers. When the range of participants expands and the haphazard street interviews morph into organized roundtable discussions, those interviewers take part, joining the ranks of the movie’s subjects—as do Morin and Rouch themselves. And those prepared scenes give rise to a spontaneous and improvised yet highly directed sequence in which one of the interviewers, Marceline Loridan, delivers painful reminiscences in a psychodramatic monologue, spoken into a tape recorder, that morphs the documentary suddenly and inextricably into fiction.

At the same time, fiction filmmakers, such as Jean-Luc Godard, who were inspired by Rouch made dramatic features that were audaciously reflexive and self-revealing. In Hollywood, this was primarily a comic mode, with the films of Frank Tashlin and Jerry Lewis. In the world of American documentary filmmaking, Robert Drew— working with such cinematographers as Richard Leacock, D. A. Pennebaker, Albert Maysles, and Terrence McCartney Filgate—radically transformed the medium, eschewing the one-way reporting from behind the camera’s invisible authority in favor of a unified field of existential endeavor, featuring camera-conscious, self-creating subjects, by way of such films as “Primary,” “The Chair,” and “Crisis.”
与此同时,剧情片电影人让-吕克·戈达尔——受到鲁什的启发拍摄极富戏剧性,充满了大胆的自身反应和自我揭示。在好莱坞,这曾是喜剧片模式,例如弗兰克·塔希林和杰里·刘易斯的电影。在美国纪录片中,罗伯特·德鲁(曾与电影摄影师理查德·利科克, D.A.彭纳贝克,阿尔伯特·梅斯莱斯,和特伦斯·麦卡特尼·菲尔季特合作),他们从根本上改变了拍摄方式,避免了纪录片躲在摄影机之后单向报道的无形权力,转向主客体共同存在的领域,拍摄出具有摄像头意识、能进行自我创造的对象,这样的电影有《初选》、《椅子》、《危机》。

I haven’t seen all of the films in “Art of the Real” (it’s an admirably ample and wide-ranging series), but among the notable films I’ve seen there—in addition to the two I discuss in the magazine, Robert Greene’s “Actress” and Corneliu Porumboiu’s “The Second Game”—are Stephanie Spray and Pacho Velez’s “Manakamana,” Mati Diop’s “A Thousand Suns,” Thom Andersen’s “Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer,” and “Red Hollywood,” which Andersen co-directed with Noël Burch. Each of them, in its own way, arises from—and reënergizes—the historical currents, running from the very start of movies, that fuse what’s seen with what’s imagined, public events with the inner life, the filmmaking process with the world that it has, radically and irrevocably, transformed.
