Jacques Tati - Retrospective

Join us in celebrating French mime, film-maker, actor and screenwriter, Jacques Tati!

An amalgam borne of the tradition of silent film comics like Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and Laurel & Hardy.

Though he made only a handful of films, director, writer, and actor Jacques Tati ranks among the most beloved of all cinematic geniuses. With a background in music hall and mime performance, Tati steadily built an ever-more-ambitious movie career that ultimately raised sight-gag comedy to the level of high art. 

Tati only made six feature-length features in his career, but it’s a testament to his singular vision that he is ranked among the greatest auteurs with only a handful of pictures to his credit.

Jacque Tati retrospective Coorparoo is proudly sponsored by Aliance Francaise Brisbane
