Diary of a Doctor in the Trenches

A 52’ documentary directed in 2011 by Joëlle Novic

Testimonies of the doctors during the Great War are very rare, because they all stayed very silencious about this experience at their return from the frontline.

The testimony of Lucien Laby, doctor in the trench, is unique. According to his diary and his drawings, the film tells the story of what happened between Marne and Somme from August 1914 to November 1918.

Lucien Laby’s voice drives us on the footprints of the fights erased by the years.
It echos the archive videos, silent, which go with the film.

His drawings, his look testify beyond the time.
