Chronique dun été is a true landmark in film history. Rouch and Morin were among the first filmmakers to use hand held sync sound 16mm equipment. They also coined the term cinéma vérité to describe their approach, although their practice, placing people in situations and provoking responses, differs from what later came to be called vérité films. Their use of the urban landscape and groundbreaking cinematography deeply affected the French New Wave and much of subsequent documentary practice. Rouch and Morin screen the film for the participants to critique it on-screen.
