‘Sartre by Himself / Sartre par lui-même’ | 1976 | Documentary Film



A two-cassette, 3-hour celebrity interview. In 1972, Sartre sat in his apartment in the Montparnasse section of Paris for a film documentary: archive footage (including clips from the 1967 Vietnam War Crimes Tribunal, convened in London by Bertrand Russell; that’s U.S. antiwar activist Dave Dellinger to Sartre’s right) and Sartre being interviewed by old friends, including Simone de Beauvoir. Originally made for French TV,  was released theatrically in 1976.
