Top of page

Renowned for his artistic sense of capturing images, Michel Brault revolutionized the cameraman's role in film. Part poet, part inventor--he pioneered a technique for shooting synch sound interviews and walking with the hand held camera. This episode examines the best of Brault's films--as he remembers the early beginnings of the art of filmmaking... before and after sound was synched to image.
