French New Wave director Francois Truffaut’s Day for Night is a passionate love letter to the art of filmmaking. Truffaut himself stars as Ferrand, the director of a film where the behind-the-scenes drama is more interesting than anything happening in front of the camera! This sexy, funny, and sometimes tragic film is considered by many to be Truffaut’s masterpiece, and one of the greatest foreign films of all time.
Film Introduced by Prof. Michael Mulcahy
