Film Series: Zazie dans le Métro

1960. France. Dir: Louis Malle. With Catherine Demongeot. 89 min.

A young girl is left in the custody of her uncle for a weekend, but he soon loses her to the beckoning streets and subways of Paris. This is Malle at his most uninhibited, using the city as a playground for visual experimentation, exemplifying a distinctly 1960’s excitement for the uncharted possibilities of the film medium.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / Free
