FREE SATURDAY SCREENING at CAMERA!

Jan 11, 3:00 PM – Double Feature

THE AGE OF INVENTION
Dir. Albert Kish (Canada: 1984), 12 mins.
This is a short black and white documentary directed by Albert Kish.

MR. HULOT’S HOLIDAY
Dir. Jacques Tati (France: 1953), 114 mins.
Directed and staring Jacques Tati, Mr. Hulot’s Holiday is a comedy film about a man vacationing in an uptight beachside hotel who accidentally, but good-naturedly, causes havoc.  Mounsieur Hulot is a pipe-smoking, well-meaning, but clumsy character who disrupts the peace and quiet nature of the resort community while vacationing.  This is the first film to introduce this much-loved alter ego who appears in Tati’s subsequent films, including Mon Oncle (1959), Playtime (1967), and Trafic (1971).
