4 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Brazza is the story of the exploration of what will become French Equatorial Africa, the story of a -- literally -- barefoot idealist, French by choice rather than by birth, set on spreading the Republican gospel of civilization, of abolishing slavery, confronting a world of ruffians, (then already rich Anglo-Saxons), a lay missionary perfectly played by Robert Darène. The storyteller is another idealist, Léon Poirier, proud of his sobriquet "The African." A story so full of candour may bring out disbelieving smiles, if not outright anger. It is therefore particularly interesting to listen to the powerful and scathing analysis presented by Eric Deroo, a specialist on colonial history. And, finally, comments by two Batékés who, in spite of their witty and sometimes angry analysis of the film, admit to feeling a measure of respect for the character of Brazza."--Container

"In Verdun, Memories of History" Léon Poirier revisits the terrible battle which saw France pitted against Germany for over ten months. He explains that, compared with the silent version of 1928, this is a new film with a full soundtrack and dialogue. The scenes portrayed and the characters have changedd. The story is told by the character of the veteran (Paul Amiot). In Understanding Verdun, the film historian and Battle of Verdun specialist Clément Puget analyses the film. He discusses issues raised by the film which are still relevant today."--Container
