Unfortunately very little is known about this production... According
to a press sheet Frédéric Rossif made a short film for "Verve", a renowned art
magazine published by Tériade (who's original Greek name actually is Stratis
Eleftheriades). In 1973 a special exposition dedicated to Teriade was organised
in the Grand Palais in Paris (France), and Rossif's short film is somehow
related to this event. Vangelis is credited for the music in this short film, as
of yet it remains unclear whether this is original music, or perhaps re-used
recordings for previous Rossif documentaries...
Other art-based documentaries by Frédéric Rossif that Vangelis
provided a musical score for include, Georges Mathieu ou la fureur d'être
(1971), Au pays des visages (1972),
Georges Braque ou le temps différent
peintre (1981) and Morandi (1989).
