The late-career, breezy documentary short Portrait de Raymond Depardon from anthropologist filmmaker Jean Rouch consists of the director simply following and interviewing French photographer and direct cinema pioneer Raymond Depardon. Specifically, the piece came a year after Depardon’s police film Faits divers (1982), and Rouch’s questions are mainly dealing with the production of Depardon’s most recent work. Both of the men are seen conversing on camera, and there comes a great scene at the very end in which the directors take turns filming a statue and explaining their technique.
