Among the more influential members of the French New Wave was Francois Truffaut (1932–1984).Like many of his colleagues in the Nouvelle Vague, Truffaut once credited his cinema obsession to the flood of U.S. movies that swamped postwar France. This isn't a comprehensive retrospective of the 27 films Truffaut directed, let alone the 35 film-writing credits attributed to him.The program also includes "La Nuit Americaine" (1973), Truffaut's famed film within a film, starring Jacqueline Bisset and Valentina Cortese.It's not unusual for film retrospectives like this to supplement the works of the filmmaker with other works that help contextualize the artist's work. Instead, organizers chose to project Emmanuel Laurent's "Two in the Wave," a documentary that scrutinizes the ups and downs in Truffaut's relationship with Jean-Luc Godard.
