Supper & Screening: Friday, June 2 at 6:30pm
French director Jean Vigo (1905–1934) significantly influenced the French New Wave. His debut film À propos de Nice (1930, 25 min.) reveals the economic inequality hidden behind the facade of the resort town. Zero for Conduct (1933, 41 min.), initially banned in France, depicts a repressive and bureaucratised boarding school. The films will be introducted by David Weir, Professor at The Cooper Union, whose book Jean Vigo and the Anarachist Eye examines Vigo’s career in the context of the ideological upheavals of the 1930s that plunged Europe into the horrors of fascism. Please join us at TSL for a Mexican supper beginning at 6:30pm followed by a screening and discussion with David at 7:00pm.
Free for TSL members. $10 suggested donation for supper. RSVP at (518) 822-8100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
