Three characteristically lyrical short films by the great Dutch documentarian: The Seine Meets Paris (1957, 32 min.), with a commentary written by poet Jacques Prevert and spoken by singer Serge Reggiani; . . . A Valparaiso (1963, 37 min.), about the Chilean port city, with commentary by Chris Marker; and The Mistral (1965, 30 min.), about the wind in southern France—a theme that anticipates Ivens's final masterpiece, A Tale of the Wind.
