ICE-Vision: Day for Night (Francois Truffaut, 1973)
Wednesday, April 24 at 8 PM
Lamar Dodd School of Art Room S150
ICE-Vision returns after a two-week hiatus with one of Francois Truffaut’s most memorable films. This self-reflexive movie-about-movies features Truffaut himself as the director of a doomed film production, with Jean-Pierre Léaud as his young lead. At twenty-nine in Day for Night, Léaud first appeared before Truffaut’s camera as fifteen year-old Antoine Doinel in The 400 Blows. Part documentary and part experiment, this tribute to the art of cinema is a charming deconstruction of filmmaking itself and an excellent send-off to this semester’s ICE-Vision screenings.
Many thanks to Film Studies major Daniel LoPilato for an exciting year of ICE screenings!
