Welcome to Metrograph: A to Z Film Series

Image: "We Won't Grow Old Together" directed by Maurice Pialat

Beginning when they opened their doors, to announce the Metrograph ethos and to show the audiences what their idea of cinema encompasses, this two-year, nearly-200-hundred-film series is coming to an end. The rule was one film per director, broken in the case of John Ford, because he made an astounding number of great films beginning with the letter “S,”.

Iconic French directors such as Henri-Georges Clouzot or Jacques Doillon have one of their films screened during this over one month long final chapter, inside a collection of films highly recommended for everyone to see by the Metrograph.

The Metrograph programming team like to think they have saved some of the best for last, though it’s still sad to say goodbye. In fact, they are almost tempted to start all over again…
