Les États généraux du film documentaire 2014 Doc History: Italy Un fiume di luce

Un fiume di luce ( Un fleuve de lumière )
Nelo Risi
1958 - Italie - Couleur - 10'

This visually powerful and audaciously constructed industrial documentary alternates between the ironic drawings of Mino Maccari illustrating the history of electricity since 1700 and forceful images of the river of light that descends from high mountain dams to illuminate our modern cities. An unusual and poetic film, imbued with a sincere faith in progress.
