Presenting Natan

natanI’m happy to say you can now all watch NATAN, the documentary Paul Duane and I made a few years ago, at this link.

It contains some strong, unpleasant imagery, but has been described as “essential viewing for cinephiles.” I might not go that far, except that if you don’t know much about Bernard Natan then you should and this film would allow you to do so in just over an hour.

NATAN, the documentary Paul Duane and I directed in 2013, airs today on Arte in France and Germany at 22.15. The film’s TV premiere. Special thanks to all who helped make it possible, and particularly Serge Bromberg for his tireless efforts as distributor. We’re hoping this leads to sales elsewhere, but it’s wonderful in itself — France was always the key place we wanted to play.

“Bernard Natan haunts the history of French cinema…” – Le Monde

“Natan is an extraordinary film!” – Philip Kaufman

“I loved it. It is a very moving, thoughtful documentary” – Bertrand Tavernier

Bernard Natan revolutionised French Cinema. So why was he destroyed, imprisoned, murdered, and then, after his death, why was even his memory turned into a sick joke? – Craig McCall (CAMERAMAN)
