Rate this:
Sartre and Camus, world-famous 20th century French writers, form a legendary and inseparable couple. The two extraordinary thinkers propelled the figure of the politically engaged writer into the limelight. Between 1943 and 1951, Sartre and Camus were friends. In 1952, they publically tore each other apart with violence, panache, and in bad faith, largely on account of the cold war. Their conflict marked generations of intellectuals who had to choose whether they sided with Sartre or Camus. This film features personal accounts and a previously unaired recording of Sartre talking about Camus. It is centred around previously unseen archive images, and contains original graphics.
