The historian, wrote Marc Bloch, is like the ogre of legend: he is thirsty for fresh flesh. Through this strong image, the professor of the University of Strasbourg, which became french again in 1919, reminds us that the subject of history is man. Man from birth to death, in all his ages and social states, in his cultural practices and his faith. It is therefore at the heart of the films revived by this shared cinematheque. Anchored in a singular territory and history, man lives, feels and films in a particular way the complex notion of borders, the declination of regional and local identities, the relationship to the body and health. These three (re)readings grids seemed to us to be appropriate for reflection on images as the source of the history of the Upper Rhine - without freezing them in one category or another.
