Author: Claude Lanzmann.
This afternoon at 19:00 hrs, Centro Sefarad-Israel presents, at the Palace of Cañete (69 Mayor Street of Madrid), this work collecting the most stunning articles by Claude Lanzmann. Some of his most eminent contemporaries appear in these: Richard Burton, who abandons him in an interview “because he cannot make Liz wait”; Jean-Paul Belmondo, “soldier, gangster, seminarian”; Serge Gainsnsbourg, “the reputable seducer with protruding ears”; or Jean Paul Sartre, “traveller without ticket, without sense of existence, nothing in his hands, nothing in his pockets, as dispossessed at the age of fifty-eight as he was at the age of eight”.
Before dedicating himself to the cinema in 1970 and launching his first documentary film, Shoah, Lanzmann had been part of the Resistence, a period when he shaped a critical attitude that kept later during his years as a journalist from the pages of Le Monde and Elle, among other media. It was Jean Paul Sartre himself who invited to write in Les Temps Modernes by the middle of the 50s, a publication that he directs since the death of Simone de Beauvoir in 1986. His last and awarded film is The last of the unjust (2013).
