It would be nice to do something political (AIS 22)

Michel Ciment and 50 Positif years
We meet the editor of the French magazine Positif now celebrating its 50th anniversary.
In our interviw with Michel Ciment, editor of Positif, we discuss the role of film magazines, the state of cinema and, inevitably for a publication so old, the importance of the past.
Positif was founded in Lyon, by a group of students led by Bernard Chardere who was only 22 at the time. The publication of its first issue in 1952 followed the Cahiers du Cinema by only a year. Soon after Chadere went to Algeria for the war and the magazine moved to its current location in Paris.
