A copy is en route to me from the distributor, Lobster Films. You’ll have to get yours from Amazon.fr.
The good news: English and French subs, region-free. There’s a tiny extra of Natan’s party to open the studio at Rue Francoeur, which is now La Femis, France’s national film school. Apparently the guests were filmed, the footage was rushed to the lab, and at the end of the party it came back and was projected so they could see themselves. Not quite instantaneous, but a novelty at the time.
For newcomers: NATAN, a feature documentary by Paul Duane and myself, tells the story of a true cinema pioneer, a man who discovered great movie stars, innovated technically with sound, colour and widescreen, radio and television, and was perhaps the most powerful figure in French cinema from 1930-1936, but who was destroyed by a cabal of enemies, his reputation smeared, and ultimately his life taken away. Not even his memory remained — until now.
