France | 1959 | b&w | dir. François Truffaut, with Jean-Pierre Léaud, Albert Rémy | 4K restoration

François Truffaut’s first feature and a cinematic recreation of his own childhood is one of the defining films of the French New Wave. Misunderstood and neglected, 13-year-old outcast Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud) seeks to rebel against the oppressive social norms of school and home. Turning to petty crime, Antoine skips school to traverse the streets of Paris.
