La natation par Jean Taris, champion de France [documentary short]

Jean Vigo: 1931

And my favorite was Jean Vigo’s under 10 minute short LA NATATION PAR JEAN TARIS, CHAMPION DE FRANCE (1931) which is an introduction of sorts to the sport and art of swimming as demonstrated by France’s greatest ever swimmer Jean Taris. Sort of. It’s a visual treat and I’m still not sure how Vigo got some of the shots back in the days before specialized underwater cameras and lighting. 8/10. [3/27/12]
h, and I forgot to add that after watching LA NATATION two more times this afternoon to try to figure out the underwater shots (I couldn’t) I was still blown away by it. 10/10.
