World on War: A Man Escaped (1956)

A Man EscapedThe Essential‘s The World on War is a monthly feature where “we travel around the globe and investigate how armed conflict influences a country’s popular culture and its representation of war in film.

My contribution to this feature was an analysis of Robert Bresson’s A Man Escaped as an embodiment of the fear and faith in occupied France during World War I, alongside the film’s merits as a minimalist, affective artistic work. My piece – A Man Escaped embodies the fear and faith of occupied France – can be found at the The Essential.
