America as Seen by a Frenchman

Synopsis

In 1960, the documentary filmmaker and traveler François Reichenbach gathered together some of the images he had recorded during his many trips to the United States during the late 1950s. He composes an amused, intrigued and often fascinated portrait of a country in full post-WWII boom, a country that was also, at the time, very different from France or Europe—in both its modern and creative aspects and its rigid, conservative edges.
