Dir. Jean-Baptiste Péretié
2021, France, 60 min
French with English subtitles

The glorious failure that was Tativille, Jacques Tati’s ambitious film set consisting of fully realized modernist architecture, is the stuff of legends. In Jacques Tati: Tombe de la Lune, director Jean-Baptiste Péretié, whose previous films include profiles of Buster Keaton, Al Pacino and John Wayne, effectively goes beyond the rote story we’ve heard time and time again. Through an impressive amount of behind-the-scenes footage, we witness the full scope of Tati’s spectacular rise as entertainer and gentle commentator on modernity. Péretié leaves us with a renewed appreciation for the doomed Tativille and its genius, obsessive architect Tati.

Presented in partnership with the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation.
