Quatre d’entre elles

Switzerland  ·  1970  ·  DCP  ·  Black and White  ·  110'  ·  o.v. French

In 1966, four young French-speaking Swiss filmmakers, Yves Yersin, Francis Reusser, Claude Champion and Jacques Sandoz, met with critic and producer Freddy Landry to work on a feature film made up of four individual shorts, with shared financing and materials. The idea was to tell the story of four women, aged 16, 22, 31 and 72: Sylvie, Patricia, Erika and Angèle. This bold project, which blends fiction and documentary, had a complex two-year development process, which culminated in the selection of Yves Yersin’s episode at the Semaine de la Critique in Cannes in 1968.

Restored by the Cinémathèque suisse with support from Memoriav and RTS.
