Filming for three months in Istanbul, Pialat brought his painterly eye to a series of luminous documentaries about people and architecture in the Turkish city – Pehlivan (1964), Maître Galip (1964), La Corne d’or (1964), Istanbul (1964), Byzance (1964) and Bosphore (1964). Back home, he directed two short films for the series Chroniques de France, retracing the steps of the painter in Van Gogh (1965) and celebrating the life of La Camargue (1966).
