Jean Vigo: Three Films
Three short films by legendary filmmaker Jean Vigo, all available in HD for the first time. ‘A Propos de Nice’ (1929), Vigo’s first film, a witty and satirical documentary about the French coastal resort of Nice and its inhabitants. ‘Taris’ (1931), an inventive portrait of the eponymous French swimming champion. Finally ‘Zéro de Conduite’ (1933), an anarchic film detailing the rebellion of a group of French schoolboys against the discipline and austerity of their squalid boarding school. Made a year before Vigo’s final film ‘L’Atalante’, ‘Zero de Conduite’ was banned until 1945 and only recently restored.
