Haute Lisse

Postwar Shorts

Part of Jean Grémillon
Sunday, December 14, 2014, 7:30 p.m.

Dir. Jean Grémillon. Grémillon never returned to his popular primacy in the postwar period, but this perfectly suited a filmmaker who was loathe to repeat himself, and in his remaining years he dove into the expressive outlet of the short film, largely concentrating on the process of artistic handicrafts. Films include Alchimie (1952-54, 7 mins), La Maison aux Images (1955, 18 mins, 16mm), Haute Lisse (1956, 16 mins), and André Masson et les quatre éléments (1958, 21 mins 35mm), Grémillon’s last completed work before his death in 1959, a reflection on the paintings of Masson which is among Grémillon’s greatest achievements.
