An interesting companion piece to Costa Gavras' hard hitting film is our
documentary:

COSTA-GAVRAS TALKS WITH MARCEL OPHULS: POLITICAL FILMS

Two internationally known directors who have made a specialty of films with
an outspoken political edge discuss the values and methods in the genre, and
the problems they have faced.

Costa-Gavras was best known for "Z" and "State of Siege", and Ophuls for "The
Sorrow and The Pity" and "Sense of Loss" when this conversation --
illustrated with film clips -- was produced. Costa-Gavras' film "Special
Section" had just been released.

Costa-Gavras' films, though based on real facts and issues, are scripted and
professionally acted. Ophuls' work is documentary in style. They address such
themes as the difference between "objective" and "subjective" truth, and
their personal motives for choosing this form of film art.
