Our second series of Looking at Art Cinema is back. This section is "Talking about a Revolution" and will again be led by Cagney Gentry. The first film in the series is the Francois Truffaut classic Day for Night. Admission includes films screening, discussion following and coffee and pastries from Camino.
This affectionate farce from François Truffaut about the joys and strife of moviemaking is one of his most beloved films. Truffaut himself appears as the harried director of a frivolous melodrama, the shooting of which is plagued by the whims of a neurotic actor (Jean-Pierre Léaud), an aging but still forceful Italian diva (Valentina Cortese), and a British ingenue haunted by personal scandal (Jacqueline Bisset). An irreverent paean to the prosaic craft of cinema as well as a delightful human comedy about the pitfalls of sex and romance, Day for Night is buoyed by robust performances and a sparkling score by the legendary Georges Delerue.
