Tribute to Truffaut

From 05/10/2014 at 14:00 to 30/11/2014 at 14:00

“Cinema, as an art form, proceeds indirectly, saying things by leaving them unsaid, hiding as much as it shows.”
François Truffaut’s great talent lied in the exploitation of this paradox, and in each of his films he achieved the fine balance between a straight-forward and more oblique method of narration or exhibition. Truffaut is a poet because he doesn't try to be; his simplest images are also his most arresting.
The man behind the New Wave, and director of films such as The 400 Blows, Jules et Jim and The Last Metro, is perhaps the quintessential French director and certainly a seminal figure in the history of cinema.
He died 30 years ago at the young age of 52. We pay tribute to him as part of the Institute Sunday French Classics series.
