The film Mauprat directed by Jean Epstein features Luis Bunuel as assistant director, it will be his first film credit. Though born in Spain, Bunuel would begin and end his career in France, creating some of his best work in French and financed by French supporters.
An experimental documentary about Paris is released called Rien que les heures. Continued innovation and experimention in France continues. The continued innovation of the medium is about to peak as sound is on the brink of becoming the mainstream. Avant-garde and experimental cinema is at it’s height, and one can only assume that such a heavy influx of films that push the boundaries and understanding of the medium will never be matched again.
