HENRI STORCK: MISÈRE AU BORINAGE - THE SOCIAL FILMS

MISÈRE AU BORINAGE brings together Storck's Social Films, including the 1933 title work co-directed with Joris Ivens, which has become a classic of the "cinema of reality", with which Storck was most closely associated. In 1937 he made LES MAISONS DE LA MISÈRE, denouncing slum housing in the same pamphleteering style, and in 1938 LE PATRON EST MORT, an account of the funeral of Emile Vandervelde, leader of the Belgian Labour Party.
