LA MAISON DE LA RADIO
Celebrated documentarian Nicolas Philibert (TO BE AND TO HAVE) goes inside the world of French Public Radio, where, from pre-dawn to day's end, the radio crackles across a variety of channels with lively discussions on politics, literature and sports; in-studio musical performances, interviews and quiz shows; not to mention news, weather and traffic! Deftly edited and capturing moments of sly observational humor, Philibert shows what is usually only heard; and by giving on-air performances and behind-the-scenes work equal footing, the film provides a Frederick Wiseman-like appreciation for this great media institution. Official Selection, 2013 Berlin Film Festival.
