The 400 Blows
Saturday, July 18, 2:00 p.m.
Sunday, July 19, 2:00 p.m.







1959, 99 mins. Directed by Fran├žois Truffaut. With Jean-Pierre Leaud. Truffaut's most personal and influential film is a memoir of his troubled childhood, with teenager Jean-Pierre Leaud as his alter-ego Antoine Doinel. Vividly photographed in widescreen black-and-white, the film captures feelings of anxiety and escape, as Antoine rebels against oppressive parents and teachers, leading to an often-copied freeze-frame ending.


And God Created Woman
Saturday, July 18, 4:00 p.m.
Sunday, July 19, 4:00 p.m.







1956, 94 mins. Directed by Roger Vadim. With Brigitte Bardot, Jean-Louis Trintignant. Roger Vadim created Brigitte Bardot...or at least he crafted her screen image as an earthy, barefoot love goddess in the film that some consider to be the first work of the French New Wave. Widescreen, brightly colored pastel images of St. Tropez capture Bardot's free-spirited performance. Truffaut wrote admiringly "From now on, films no longer need to tells stories, it is enough to describe one's first love affair, to take one's camera to the beach."
