This summer as always, Turin’s very own (niche) Cinema Centrale Arthouse unrelentlessly keeps on introducing some very interesting pieces of cinematography – in original language. This time, they bring, for the first time here in Italy, a 2016 documentary regarding one of the sacred monsters of photography: Robert Doisneau.

The documentary  – originally entitled Robert Doisneau, le révolté du merveilleux” – was  directed by Clémentine Deroudille, the artist’s own granddaughter, and wishes to acquaint the viewer with some novel (?!) aspects of Doisneau’s life and work. French critics found it a bit redundant and clichè at times, but that doesn’t mean it is not worth seeing it. At least for revisiting, one more time, some of papy‘s insights into the mundane.

N.B. Screenings, thankfully, in the original French version (for connaisseurs, obviously), with Italian subs.

Cinema Centrale Arthouse

The wonderful Cinema Centrale Arthouse – situated near the city center in via Carlo Alberto 27 and one of the two cinemas in Turin screening films in their original language – and Cinema Fratelli Marx – on Corso Belgio 53 – , have one big surprise for us at the beginning of the year. From January 23rd to February 19th, they join in organizing the much awaited 4th edition of the Documentary Month. Maybe not everyone’s cup of tea, but just about the right choice for cinephiles with enough time on their hands and curious about some of the latest prized additions to the documentary world.
