LA DOUBLE VIE DE MONSIEUR G.

Dir. Catherine Galodé (France) 13:02 mins.

This film explores the making of and ideas behind Gilbert Garcin’s photographs. In conversation with photographer Christian Ramade and critic Jean-Claude Carbonne, Garcin examines how his work and the character he embodies allows him to lead a “double life.”
Please note: this film is in French with no subtitles.


TRAFIC
Dir. Jacques Tati (Italy: 1971), 96 mins.

M. Hulot designs an ingenious car for Altra Motors and to be expected, it has many clever features. M. Hulot follows the tow truck, which is bringing his prototype to an auto show in Amsterdam, in his own car and is also followed by a glamorous PR executive named Maria in her own sports car. This road trip has every imaginable problem, delaying the arrival of the prototype for the auto show; a flat tire, no gas, an accident, a run-in with police, a stop at a garage, and numerous traffic jams.Through interactions with different common town’s people, Maria gradually loses her imperious conceit, learning a few things about herself along the way.
