About the Event

Playtime
1967, France/Italy, 124 minutes
French (with English Subtitles)

Jacques Tati’s gloriously choreographed, nearly wordless comedies about confusion in an age of high technology reached their apotheosis with PlayTime. For this monumental achievement, a nearly three-year-long, bank-breaking production, Tati again thrust the lovably old-fashioned Monsieur Hulot, along with a host of other lost souls, into a baffling modern world, this time Paris. With every inch of its superwide frame crammed with hilarity and inventiveness, PlayTime is a lasting record of a modern era tiptoeing on the edge of oblivion.

The film is screened by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation, in partnership with FORTH. Beer and unlimited popcorn for $5.
