Jean Rouch's seminal 1961 film, for which he coined the term "cinema verite," made in collaboration with sociologist Edgar Morin. Rouch, an ethnologist, applies the techniques of his anthropological films in an attempt to document the state of the Parisian mind in the summer of 1960. Wandering the streets with their camera crew, Rouch and Morin stop passersby to ask, "Are you happy?" Some are, some aren't, which makes for a fascinating experiment.
