Throughout the summer, the Harvard Film Archive will screen Jean Renoir's works.
A unique occasion for cinema lovers to (re)discover this major figure, not only in French cinema but also internationally.

THE COMPLETE JEAN RENOIR

Jean Renoir (1894-1979) is now considered a legendary director, a genius who defines cinematic realism and humanist filmmaking. The rare opportunity to experience all of his films in a short period of time complicates this extremely oversimplified reputation. It allows for the chance to re-evaluate those films said to be failures because they do not conform to our received notions, and to enjoy a renewed appreciation for the acknowledged masterpieces. The HFA will show all of Renoir’s work in addition to documentaries about the director and his first screen effort as scenarist and producer. All silent films will feature live accompaniment.

About Jean Renoir:

A director, actor and scriptwriter, Jean Renoir is the second son of celebrated French impressionist painter Auguste Renoir.
As a film director and an actor, he made more than forty films from the silent era to the end of the 1960s. His films La Grande Illusion (1937) and The Rules of the Game (1939) are often cited by critics as among the greatest films ever made. Among numerous honors accrued during his lifetime, he received a Lifetime Achievement Academy Award in 1975 for his contribution to the motion picture industry.
Indeed from the 1930s to the 1950s, his films deeply influenced and reflected the evolution of French cinema, paving the way for the French New Wave one decade after.
