History:

Pierre Chenal was a French film director and scriptwriter. Chenal completed his education as an engineer, but his truly passion was films. He began making shot films about French architecture and then he continued shooting films, mostly adaptations of novels, among which stands out the adaptation, in 1935, of "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and also "The Last Turn" (1939), adaptation of "The Postman Always Rings Twice". He saw himself forced to leave France due to the German military occupation and he went to Buenos Aires. He was hired in Argentina by Artistas Argentinos Asociados (Association of Argentine Artists), a film company with which he produced four films. He went back to France and shot six more films before retiring. Among his most popular films are: "Crime and Punishment" (1935), "Native Son" (1951) and "Les belles au bois dormantes" (1970).
