Zéro de Conduite

The Complete Jean Vigo

Double Feature with L’ATALANTE

1933 • dir Jean Vigo • 49 min • DCP

So effervescent and charming that one can easily forget its importance in film history, Vigo’s enormously influential portrait of prankish boarding-school students is one of cinema’s great acts of rebellion. Based on the director’s own experiences as a youth, ZÉRO DE CONDUITE presents childhood as a time of unfettered imagination and brazen rule-flouting. It’s a sweet-natured vision of sabotage made vivid by dynamic visual experiments – including the famous, blissful slow-motion pillow fight. Includes newly restored footage!

Staff Pick: Kim

“A wholly original creation, the film walks a narrow line between surrealist farce and social realism.” – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
