The Way It Was: Paris Restaurants in the 1970s (Stephen Scher, 1973/2023, DCP, 44 mins)
A Cooler Climate (James Ivory, 1960/2022, DCP, 72 mins)

Stephen Scher and James Ivory in person! Two filmmakers rediscover and reimagine documentaries they embarked upon decades before. Scher tempts us with a bygone restaurant scene in Paris, while Ivory turns his 1960s footage of Kabul and Bamiyan into an “essay on history, memory and the vanities of civilization-building” (Olaf Möller). Presented by the Yale Film Archive.
