The Films of Pierre Étaix

January 4–18, 2017

Discover a neglected master of comic filmmaking! Originally screened at the MFA in 2013, the retrospective series returns in remembrance of Pierre Étaix, who passed away in October. The circus acrobat turned film director leaves a legacy of brilliant slapstick in the tradition of Jerry Lewis and Jacques Tati.
