A "Jules et Jim" Picnic w/ Pre-Show Music from Tortoise (Off-site at Barnsdall Art Park)

Co-presented by La Collectionneuse, Decandanse Soirée, and Zebulon LA

Ticket price includes a wine tasting.

Zebulon LA, the new outpost by the beloved Brooklyn music cafe, presents music by John Herndon and Jeff Parker (of Tortoise) and Decadanse Soirée will bring the French tunes, as we all picnic before one of the greatest French films of all time.

The defining film of the French New Wave, endlessly referenced and reimagined, Jules et Jim’s iconic, tragic love triangle–with the Austrian Jules, his French bohemian friend Jim, and the enigmatic Catherine as its points–is a romance that echoes throughout pop culture, zeroing in on that perennial draw: youthful love too perfect to last. Buoyed along by a kind of propulsive jouissance, this third feature from Truffaut (following The 400 Blows and Shoot the Piano Player) pushed boundaries with its every move–with nimble and fluid nouvelle vague-defining camerawork, evocative music, and stellar performances (especially from cool girl and award-winner Jeanne Moreau).

Dir François Truffaut, 1962, digital presentation, 105 mins.
