The Screen Guide

The first part of The First Interview completes a documentary begun in Paris 124 years ago, on the 100th birthday of the great French scientist Michel-Eugene Chevreul. His conversation with the famous photographer Nadar - relaxed, witty and wise - is the first on-camera interview in history. The film also sketches in their long and influential lives, and brings the 1886 photographs to life in a highly original way. The second part of The First Interview shows the whole process of turning these famous still photographs and original text into an 'impossible movie': a 'talkie' interview from 1886!
