Alain Mignet just posted this link to Facebook, an upcoming documentary on Henri Mignet!

DOCUMENTAIRE
HENRI MIGNET, L'AVENTURE DE L'AVIATION POUR TOUS

Inédit Lundi 11 Février 2019 après Soir 3 Sur France 3 Nouvelle-Aquitaine

Henri Mignet est un autodidacte : passionné d'aviation et désireux d'en faire un divertissement accessible à tous, il réfléchit à la construction de son propre avion...

A partir des archives filmées, dessinées ou écrites par Henri Mignet et conservées par son petit-fils, ce documentaire propose de replonger dans l’enthousiasme que suscita à cette époque le Pou-du-Ciel. Un mouvement qui essaima jusqu'aux USA, en Argentine ou au Japon, et qui préfigure des concepts bien dans l'air de notre propre temps, tels que les loisirs, l'aviation ULM ou le Do It Yourself des bricoleurs et des FabLabs.

DOCUMENTARY
HENRI MIGNET, THE ADVENTURE OF AVIATION FOR ALL

Premieres Monday 11 February 2019 after Soir 3 on France 3 Nouvelle-Aquitaine

Henri Mignet is an autodidact: passionate about aviation and eager to make it a pastime accessible to all, he considers building his own plane ...

From the archives filmed, drawn or written by Henri Mignet and kept by his grandson, this documentary let's us dive into the enthusiasm generated by the Pou-du-Ciel (Flying Flea), a movement that swept the USA, Argentina or even Japan, predating modern concepts of recreation, ultralight aviation, Do It Yourself DIYers and FabLabs.

Thanks, Battler Britton, for the tip!

There is some really great stuff in there, I hope the collection of drawings is scanned for posterity and the originals donated to a museum like the one in Angers. I especially like the bits about the HM.280 Pou Maquis that led directly to the postwar Mignet designs for amateurs. See 33:03-34:33.
