Is it a curious coincidence, but on the same site 
a little further:


There is a film (if you can call it that) on 
Alexandria, a sort of "éloge" (It is very long and 
sometimes the image is bad).

The initial link is an interview of "Jacques 
Lacarrière" who wrote a book "Les Gnostiques" with 
a preface by LD. Published by Gallimard in Paris. 
Do not know if it was ever translated, but LD said 
it was the best written on the subject and that he 
used it as reference. The interview is from the 
archives on INA (Institut National de 
l'Audiovisuel) where there are 4 clips concerning LD:


INA started recently putting all their audio and 
video archives on-line: a very rich source indeed. 
The interview by Bernard PIVOT, who ran a literary 
programme in French TV for many many years 
(regretfully stopped now) is well worth seeing; I 
like the way it finishes "Dieu, Diable, Durrell.
