Dood in de Seine: Death in the Seine = les Morts de la Seine

Loading...
"From April, 1795 to September, 1801, three hundred and six bodies were taken from the River Seine in Paris where they were cared for by two mortuary attendants who methodically noted down the particulars of each corpse: its sex, age, hair color, bodily wounds and scars, clothing, if any, and the contents of their pockets. With information later provided by witnesses, it became possible to speculate upon the lives and manner of death of the decedents--a subject all the more intriguing since all of those taken from the Seine had witnessed the French Revolution. Peter Greenaway has used these images to construct a stark and visually shocking film."--Container.

On the evening of October 17, 1961 about 30,000 Algerians, ostensibly French citizens, descended upon the boulevards of central Paris to protest an 8:30 curfew. The curfew was in response to repeated terrorist attacks by Algerian nationalists in Paris and other French cities. They were met by a police force determined to break up the demonstration. Demonstrators were beaten, shot, even drowned in the Seine. This video exposes the massacre, and the cover-up.
