François Truffaut’s THE 400 BLOWS – The 60th Anniversary

It’s the 60th anniversary of French New Wave auteur François Truffaut’s THE 400 BLOWS! Come celebrate in style with not one, but *two* slick digital restoration screenings of this landmark film.

“François Truffaut’s first feature is also his most personal. Told from the point of view of Truffaut’s cinematic counterpart, Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud), The 400 Blows (Les quatre cents coups) sensitively re-creates the trials of Truffaut’s own childhood, unsentimentally portraying aloof parents, oppressive teachers, and petty crime. The film marked Truffaut’s passage from leading critic to trailblazing auteur of the French New Wave.”
