    • Synopsis
    • Travelling alone, internationally acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Raymond Depardon spent six years capturing his home country with a large format camera. This long, solitary road trip provided fertile ground for the creation - with his long-time partner and collaborator Claudine Nougaret - of an extraordinary travel journal.
      The journey returned Depardon to important places from his past as a reporter - Chad, Venice, Cannes - and to a wealth of previously unseen footage from his archive - an interview with Jean-Bedel Bokassa, film of Jean-Luc Godard, extraordinary glimpses of private and public life.
      Intimate, compelling, revelatory, "Journal de France" offers a unique portrait of a country and its landscapes, an overview of a truly remarkable career and a fascinating resume of the development of the photographic art over the past half century.
