(PG) France – 1 hr 55 min – with subtitles
1973 · d. François Truffaut
Starring Jacqueline Bisset, Jean-Pierre Aumont, Valentina Cortese
As Ferrand labors to shoot the destined-to-be-a-stinker MEET PAMELA, the production swirls with its own drama—affairs, accidents, egos, crises, and more—in this ode to moviemaking as a craft and a lifestyle.
Presented in collaboration with the Departments of French and Francophone Studies at Bryn Mawr College and Haverford College, the feature will be preceded by the 1981 short film “When I’m Young,” directed by DAY FOR NIGHT editor Yann Dedet, who will be present for a post-film Q&A.
