The Tale of the Fox (65 mn)


Ladislas & Irène Starewitch

New sound and image restoration.

The Tale of the Fox is a masterpiece. It is the only feature-length film of Ladislas and Irène Starewitch and has been newly restored digitially. The images were shot in 1929-1930. Ten years afterwards, the French version was reworked with sound for its Paris premiere in 1941. In the meantime, a first sound version, Reineke Fuchs, was viewed in Germany in 1937. For the first time ever, the viewer will be able to make note of the clear differences between these two versions, both from the masterful hand of L. Starewitch.
