Canadian documentory "To achieve the spontaneity they wanted, Rouch and Morin called on the cameraman Michel Brault, who had been experimenting with synchronous sound and light-weight equipment in Canada. The starting point of the film is a series of random interviews conducted on the streets of Paris, when passers-by are confronted with the question 'are you happy?'. The question, asked against the background of a divisive war in Algeria, takes on a growing resonance. (Cine Lumiere)
