FRA/ITA | 1960 | dir. Jacques Becker, with André Bervil, Jean Keraudy, Michel Constantin

In a Paris prison cell, five inmates use every ounce of their tenacity and ingenuity in an elaborate attempt to tunnel to freedom. Based on a novel by José Giovanni, Jacques Becker’s last film balances lyrical humanism with a tense, unshakable air of imminent danger.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Ginette Vincendeau, Professor in Film Studies at King’s College London
