Représenter la pauvreté en banlieue parisienne. Le film Aubervilliers, Éli Lotar et Jacques Prévert, 1945

Abstract : Following latest research about Eli Lotar and the retrospective that was devoted to him in 2017, this first-year of master's study tries to understand the construction of the image of poverty in the Paris suburbs after the Second World War. The influence of the committed documentary of the 1930s, resulting from Lotar's first experiences with cinema, and his links with Prevert's poetry, allowed the filmmaker photographer to elaborate a poetic film. The images of the film Aubervilliers testify to the confrontation of a real, interpreted by the author, with their visual representations in the cinema. Representing poor children and the bad living conditions in the suburbs of Paris raise questions related to childhood and the future of society after the war. Although the film is the result of a political drive to bring about a change in mentalities, Lotar constructs an image of poverty in the suburbs. Between photography, film and poetry, this research explores the visual modernity of the artist.
