Chronique d'un été (Chronicle of a Summer) is a documentary film made during the summer of 1960 by sociologist Edgar Morin and anthropologist and filmmaker Jean Rouch, with the technical and aesthetic collaboration of Québécois director-cameraman Michel Brault. The film begins with a discussion between Rouch and Morin on whether or not it is possible to act sincerely in front of a camera. A cast of real-life individuals are then introduced and are led by the filmmakers to discuss topics on the themes of French society and happiness in the working class. At the end of the movie, the filmmakers show their subjects the compiled footage and have the subjects discuss the level of reality that they thought the movie obtained.

It is also widely regarded as an experimental and structurally innovative film and an example of cinéma vérité. The term "cinema verite" was suggested by the film's publicist and coined by Rouch, highlighting a connection between film and its context.

In a 2014 Sight and Sound poll, film critics voted Chronicle of a Summer the sixth best documentary film of all time.
