Recommend this film

World peace, disarmament and re-armament are hackneyed phrases, and the images we see on television and in the paper are hackneyed images. It was with this in mind that I set out – with more than a little delight – to drag the long worn-out images of the Geneva summit between Reagan and Gorbachev into the spotlight once again...

The film revives those days gone by as exactly as possible, in accordance with the wonderfully flickering pictures that had branded them selves in my memory. I gathered some of the material as a spectator in Geneva, but also tweaked the old TV images until they had been prodded into obedience. The framework for the story was provided by Roman Signer: refrain, commentary and fresh air. Peter Liechti
