Introducing JANUS FILMS AT THE FRIDA, a new monthly film series at The Frida Cinema kicking off August 28 and 29 with Francois Truffaut’s landmark 1959 film The 400 Blows!

Truffaut’s essential masterpiece marks the genesis of timeless nouvelle vague character Antoine Doinel; his is the story of a 13-year-old misbehaving child whose adventures were based on director Francois Truffaut’s own childhood. Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Leaud) is a young boy growing up in Paris during the 1950s, a post war period of major growth for the region as a whole. Misunderstood by his parents for playing truant from school and stealing, and tormented in school for behavioral problems by his teacher.

Every last Monday and Tuesday of the month, we will be partnering with Janus Films to bring our community opportunities to see some of cinema’s greatest works, painstakingly restored by this celebrated American film distribution company. Janus Films is credited with introducing numerous films which are now considered masterpieces of world cinema to American audiences, including works by Michelangelo Antonioni, Sergei Eisenstein, Ingmar Bergman, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa, François Truffaut, Yasujirō Ozu and many other well-regarded directors.
