JACQUOT DE NANTES
Directed by Agnès Varda, 1991, PG, 1h58, France

Presented in partnership with Fort Lee Film Commission as part of their “Movies and Music Under the Stars” series

Once upon a time, an eight-year old boy lived a happy childhood with his parents, Marilou and Raymond, and his little brother, Yvon. It is 1939, in Nantes, and his name is Jacquot. He spends his days in his father’s car garage where everyone likes to sing. On weekends, the family goes to the movies. While Jacquot is raised to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a mechanic, he buys a camera and begins to make short films with puppets and music. An early lesson of family loyalty and artistic passion is presented to Jacquot in this biopic that is based off Jacques Demy’s childhood.

Preceded by MATRIMONY’S SPEED LIMIT
Directed by Alice Guy-Blaché, 1913, 14 min, USA
