Film Notes

Antiquity was a source of unending inspiration for paintings, novels, dance and not least for fashion. According to Henri Bousquet, Dans l’Hellade was shown in a film programme during the “Festival of Work and Art”, which Charles Pathé organised for his staff (Catalogue Pathé 1909, 1993 p. 204). Until recently this film was only known in a Pathé Kok version (which was shown at Cinema Ritrovato 2008). Since then however both a stencil-coloured nitrate positive and a black and white print struck from the original negative have surfaced.
