Eugene Ionesco (1912-1994), the Romanian-born French dramatist, speaks at length about his childhood, his studies, the type of theatre he enjoyed in his youth, his original personality, and his constant need for solitude.

He also discusses the absurdity of our world and our inability to communicate. His plays draw on parody and symbolism to denounce the absurdity of life and social relationships. Finally, he touches on his Nazi resistance and his disbelief over the reaction of intellectuals during the war. A rare archive film shot in 1961, b/w, 30 mins. Transcript available with the film by request.
