| Cartier Bresson Segment Is Quite Moving
Of the segments in this portmanteau Amnesty International sponsored documentary feature, I have only seen the 3 minute one in which renowned photographer Henri Cartier Bresson reads a letter on the soundtrack addressed to the then President of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania.He calls out the leader of that country for allowing the killing, in 1989, in a border area near Senegal, of two little boys, the sheperd Mamadou Ba and his brother Abdoulaye. As we hear his words ,we see examples of the photographer's work showing people like the boys in their African landscapes.The segment ends with the plaintive appeal that "It is a duty to protect the magic of childhood."The segment is accessible on a two disc set of Cartier Bresson's own films, and films about him, that came out in 2010.I would like to see the other segments.
