Sample text

Cinema would become for him a means of observation as 6 T H E F O R M AT I V E Y E A R S well as a special source of amazement. But the world and its creations also seemed filled with an incomprehensible and even more marvelous freedom. Fresh rules were created every day, and an observer could only revise and often abandon his theories in renewed contact with an evolving universe. Here, too, cinema would provide Bazin with that ongoing contact. The animals, rocks, and plants that surrounded Bazin gave him a kind of primitive strength and inspiration.

Bazin died just ahead of the movement which placed cinema in university classrooms. He taught in film clubs, at conferences, in published articles. And while many people now make their livings teaching film (and far better livings than Bazin ever enjoyed), most teachers look back with longing to that era when reflection about movies took place in a natural arena rather than the incubator of the university. Film theory is now an acquired discipline, not a spontaneous activity, and film is seen as a field of research rather than a human reality.

This doesn’t surprise me, as Marcel, a philosopher-playwright, like Sartre, who eagerly engaged the cinema, was also close to Bazin’s friend Amédée Ayfre. But let me return to 1968, the year in which Bazin, a decade after his death, was reborn in America. Yet this was the very year in Paris when the Cinémathèque was under siege and Cahiers du Cinéma xxx P R E FA C E TO T H E R E V I S E D E D I T I O N was turned upside-down, Bazin ground under by the marching feet of a collective editorship that repudiated him.
