• "TESS" DE ROMAN POLANSKI

In 1977, Roman Polanski, who had just taken refuge in France, shot his new film "TESS" based on Thomas Hardy's novel recommended by Sharon Tate... During the shooting of the documentary "Il était une fois Tess" with Serge July, I had access to the contact sheets of Bernard Prim who was the set photographer of Polanski's shooting. I think that these images cannot remain buried in binders at the bottom of the Pathé archives.

These are contact sheet photos, so the quality is not up to standard but they are extremely rare documents.
