Total runtime 75min

Pialat always felt that cinema was mainly about what happened directly in front of his camera. He brought in his own life experiences and played psychological games with his actors to make scenes as real as possible. In this illustrated talk, season programmer David Thompson will explore what made this very French director’s work so potent and influential on future directors.
