Humanitaire et cinéma films CICR des années 1920 = Humanitarian action and cinema : ICRC films in the 1920s / Memoriav ; CICR.

Publication | Library Call Number: DVD-1149 Disc 1-2

Memoriav and the ICRC have been working together to save films made by the ICRC between 1921 and 1960, and preserved on nitrate-based film stock. In the spring of 1921, the ICRC sought to reaffirm its role in the post-war world by producing four films (commissioned from its delegations in Narva and Stettin, Warsaw, Budapest and Constantinople) covering the repatriation of prisoners of war, the fight against epidemics, care for children and aid to refugees. This initiative was repeated in 1923. The first DVD shows the film archives in their raw, unedited state. The second attempts to re-create the films; each film is set in context by short documentaries in French or English.
