photography and film – facts, ideas, values


The Tracking Shot in Kapò written by French film critic Serge Daney.

Kapò (  Gillo Pontecorvo, 1959)

How refreshing to read that he admitted at the beginning he never even saw the film,  but felt compelled to write having read  Jacques Rivette’s view on how it was filmed in an article in Cahiers du cinéma (1961).
