Henri Storck (Ostend 1907 - Brussels 1999) lived through the whole history of cinema, passing from silent to sound, and from experimental to lyrical documentary. He is recognised as a pioneer of Belgian cinema and a key figure in documentary. An eyewitness of his times, he made socially engaged films, but also poetic and experimental short films, films on art and a fiction feature. His body of work consists of 70 films, including a series of accounts, presented on this DVD, on his native city of Ostend of which he was the chronicler and which remained, for him, the Queen of beaches.
This Blu-ray disk also contains six extraordinary bonus films by Henri Storck. To order HENRI STORCK: IMAGES D'OSTENDE - THE OSTEND FILMS for institutional use call: 212.280.8654 or click here for information on ordering by fax, e-mail or post.
