The Mondavi Center’s “Focus on Film” series continues on Monday, March 25, with a screening of two new wave classics by French director Francois Truffaut.
“The 400 Blows” is a 1959 feature-length film that follows a troubled teen who lives on the streets of Paris and is drawn into a career of petty crime, and begins to regret the choices he has made.
“Antoine and Colette” is a 32-minute film from 1962, examining themes of first love found and lost.
The two films will screen in the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre at 7 p.m., preceded by a 6:30 p.m. talk by Elizabeth Constable, associate professor of women and gender studies at UC Davis.
Tickets are $10 general, $5 for students, available at www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787.
