Post Screening Discussion: Playtime

Jacques Tati’s gloriously choreographed comedies reached their peak with Playtime, which follows an American tourist and befuddled Frenchman as they attempt to negotiate a bafflingly modern Paris, with highly comic results. Crammed with visual gags and an unconventional use of sound, Playtime is a lasting testament to a modern era tiptoeing on the edge of oblivion.

After the screening, join us for a discussion with the artists involved in our Tati-inspired exhibition, led by Sarah Perks, Artistic Director at Cornerhouse and HOME.

Playtime also screens on Sunday 23 November at 15:30.
