The pioneering documentary directed by anthropologist and director Jean Rouch and sociologist Edgar Morin, Chronicle of a Summer, is one of the first examples of the cinéma vérité movement. The film begins with Rouch and Morin discussing whether people can behave sincerely in front of the camera. Throughout the documentary, the directors examine social issues with actual participants, who are then shown the footage to comment on how realistic their self-portraits are.
