The Century of Henri Cartier-BressonARTE Film Premiere
Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908–2004) was one of the most famous photographers in history. His black and white photographs recorded the momentous events of the twentieth century, from the liberation of Paris in 1944 to the communist takeover in China in 1949, to the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961. In this new documentary from ARTE’s French studios, Pierre Assouline, author and friend of Cartier-Bresson, brings together images and original quotations by ‘HCB’ in a film homage.

To help support his family, the 17-year-old Sicilian Nicola goes to Germany, where he finds a job in the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg. He finds Italian friends who try to explain the mercilessness of capitalist society to him. But Nicola counts himself lucky: he has a job, a roof over his head and a German girlfriend, Brigitte. His love for her allows him to forget the day-to-day hardships of working life, the small humiliations by superiors and the linguistic isolation – until one day Brigitte leaves him. In an attempt to save his ‘honour’, Nicola becomes a murderer. He submits in silence to the trial that ensues, which he experiences as a grotesquerie. (filmportal.de)
