L' Atalante: Director's Cut

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 6:45pm to 8:14pm

Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

1934 > France > Directed by Jean Vigo

With Jean Daste, Dita Parlo

In Jean Vigo's hands, an unassuming tale of conjugal love becomes an achingly romantic reverie of desire and hope. Jean, a barge captain, marries Juliette, an innocent country girl, and the two climb aboard Jean's boat, the L'Atalante - otherwise populated by an earthy first mate and a multitude of mangy cats - and embark on their new life together. Both a surprisingly erotic idyll and a clear-eyed meditation on love, L'Atalante, Vigo's only feature-length work, is a film like no other. Shown in a new, definitive digital restoration.  Subtitled.
