This new UK documentary exploring the work of Jacques Tati follows the filmmaker’s career from his roots in the Parisian music-halls of the ’30s to his rise and ultimate fall from grace after the release of his groundbreaking masterpiece PlayTime. Filled with stunning footage from all his films and insightful contributions from an eclectic range of interviewees, including admirers Mike Mills, Frank Black and Sylain Chomet, as well as artists, academics and former collaborators, The Magnificent Tati proves absolutely fascinating. It’s an unmissable screening for Tati devotees and a great introduction to his work for those yet to experience his genius. Following the screening we hope to welcome director Michael House and some special guests for a panel discussion looking at the career and legacy of Jacques Tati.
We are pleased to announce that Marie-France Siegler and director Michael House will take part in a discussion following the screening of The Magnificent Tati.
