This documentary from the filming of the lesser-known catastrophe film by Abel Gance The End of the World (1931) includes screen tests, outtakes, and, most importantly, shows one of the most significant directors at work. Also unique are the examples of panoramic shooting around the camera’s own axis. Footage includes shots of actual filming in the famous Joinville studios.

“There’s a big difference between the sounds of real life and those that are recorded. In everyday life, we only hear part of the noise around us for psychological reasons, but if everything is recorded, our ears work differently. This is the source of fatigue from sound films.” Eugène Deslaw
