La Gare (1965) DVD_NTSC, DVD_NTSC, black and white, 20 min

Genre: Documentary

Keywords: Environment & Nature, Landscape & Architecture

A slow-waking, beautifully shot portrait of the trains in Beauvais, France. Beginning with the men who operate the train yards, the silence of the train yards is slowly interrupted by more passengers as we travel farther along the tracks. A gentle musical crescendo accompanies more human hustle and bustle, illustrating the similarities of those whose paths cross those of the train. Only in the end does the camera board the train itself, allowing for a moment of pause for powerful, visual reflection. The stark black and white serves to reinforce the sense of awakening and refresh that follows throughout the film. Shot in Beauvais, France - 1967.
