Making Movie History: Werner Nold

| 7 min

The NFB was a key factor in Werner Nold's decision to leave Switzerland for Canada. Intent on a film careet, the young photographer found work with Gilles Carle as an editor (Dimanche d'Amérique, 1961). It was an age of exploration, and Nold found himself on one of the most adventurous expeditions of all, alongside Brault and Perrault, on a shoot unlike any other. But Nold rose to the challenge, working with miles of footage and tape to give epic form to the seminal Pour la suite du monde (1963). Having cut over 100 flms - documentary, fiction and animation - he is a generous mentor to a new generation of editors.
