Also included documentary from director Leo De Boer "De weg naar Bresson AKA The road to Bresson" (1984) - a tribute to the French director and screenwriter, and to his minimalist films about sensitive individuals (or even animals) trying unsuccessfully to survive in a cruel world. Weg Naar Bresson is divided into several segments with specific themes, such as "camera" or "theory," that are illustrated by film clips, and interviews with Bresson himself and also with acclaimed directors Andrei Tarkovsky, Louis Malle and Paul Schrader.
