Camionnette (minibus used for hidden camera interviews)

Film | Accession Number: 1996.166 | RG Number: RG-60.5058 | Film ID: 3452, 3665

Minibus with equipment for hidden camera interviews, staged in the suburbs of Paris at Saint Cloud, near the LTC Studio where the final film's editing was done, in May 1983. This could have been staged in France rather late in the film's production to illustrate a sequence about the hidden camera interviews for the final film (note the closeups of the minibus and the "home" of a perpetrator -- the zoom into a specific window, for instance).

FILM ID 3452 -- Ext. Camionnette / Camera Rolls 1-4-6, 14-26
Several sequences showing exteriors of the red-striped Volkswagen minibus with the equipment for transmitting Lanzmann's hidden camera interviews. The minibus arrives at a residential destination and parks. The driver exits the vehicle and enters the back using a sliding side door. The camera zooms in on several residences, homes, and apartments. 01:04:48 Collision with fast-moving lorry.

FILM ID 3665 -- Camion en planque
Several takes of the minibus. This reel was probably filmed in Germany to correspond to the interview with Stier, RG-60.5064
