Dir. Alain Resnais. 1989, 100 mins. Written by Jules Feiffer. With Adolph Green, Linda Lavin, Gérard Depardieu. Indulging his longtime love of comic strips, Gershwin music, and pulp fiction, Resnais teamed with American cartoonist/satirist Jules Feiffer to make this delightfully oddball cross-cultural spoof, starring Adolph Green (writer of Singin’ in the Rain and The Band Wagon) as a celebrated cartoonist who travels from Cleveland to Paris to appear at an exhibition of his work, and visit his daughter, who is studying at the Sorbonne (under a professor played by Gérard Depardieu). Jules Feiffer, whose script won the best screenplay award at the Venice Film Festival, will introduce the screening.

Free with Museum admission.
