Mr. Edouard d'Araille, the director of Living Time Films Ltd. and the person who put on the Robbe-Grillet Film Festival and Conference in England in 1996, was nice enough to send me information about the availability of proceedings for the conference as well as a film documentary about Robbe-Grillet. He sent me this information back in 9/97 and I haven't gotten around to writing this until 2/98--sorry for the delay.
I scanned in the information he provided and then hand-corrected the OCR output. There may still be some mistakes. I have no other information, including price and what formats the documenatary is available in. If you are interested, please contact Mr. d'Araille at the following address:

Living Time In the Temple of Dreams Project Description: Living Time's first film production is an investigation into the relationship between writing and film-making through a study of the life and work of French Novelist and Film-maker Alain Robbe-Grillet. How is the way we express ourselves visually related to how we express ourselves verbally? What is the relationship between the Nouveau Roman and Nouvelle Vague? What can the image do that the word cannot, and vice versa? The documentary includes interviews with Robbe-Grillet and the key authorities on his work, coverage of his visit to England last Autumn, clips from all his films and extracts from his writings. Within the framework of the central investigation into the relationship between writing and film-making an examination is made of twelve themes in his work: Time, Space, The Text, The Image, Woman, Immortality, Order, Chance, The Double, Dreams, Games and The Labyrinth.
