RETROSPECTIVES

The objective of the Retrospective section of the Festival is to pay tribute to an artist, group, organization or country "for the expansion of the possibilities of the language of film or to emphasize the importance of a period, a school, a style or a particular genre of film-making in the history of cinema." This year there were three parts to the Retrospective section, the works of directors René Clair and Frank Capra, and a 'Panorama of African Cinema'.

The 11 films of René Clair that were shown were Les Grandes Manoeuvres, Paris Qui Dort, Entr'acte, Sous Les Toits de Paris, Le Million, A Nous Ia Libertè, 14 Juillet, Le Silence est d'Or, La Beautè du Diable, Belles de Nuit and Porte des Lilas.
