The Len Lye Centre Cinema is proud to present a selection of films from the French New Wave movement which emerged in the 1950’s and 1960’s and is widely considered one of the most influential movements in the history of cinema.

One of the most intensely touching stories ever made about a young adolescent. Inspired by Truffaut's own early life, it shows a resourceful boy growing up in Paris, caught between the turmoil of a broken family dynamic and a headlong dash into the world of petty crime.

FR, 1959, 99 min., Dir. François Truffaut
