Dans le labyrinthe

Dans le labyrinthe

Dans la diversité des pays, des climats, des races et des sociétés, les rites, les croyances, la présence de la nature assurent une certaine permanence et aident chacun à traverser le mystère de l'existence. Conçu pour le pavillon Labyrinthe de l'Exposition universelle de 1967, ce film à écrans multiples se veut une interprétation moderne de la légende de Thésée et du Minotaure.

The film opens with a statement "Each of us lives in a personal labyrinth" with our own "monster." How is this played out in the film? In which way do the filmmakers believe we are lost or trapped? How does the film suggest we can "overcome" the labyrinth of our lives? This film uses only images and music. If students could write a line or two of narration, what would it be?
