Summer Film School closes with a study of sound design. Clumsy Monsieur Hulot (Jacques Tati) finds himself perplexed by the intimidating complexity of a gadget-filled Paris. He attempts to meet with a business contact but soon becomes lost. His roundabout journey parallels that of an American tourist (Barbara Dennek), and as they weave through the inventive urban environment, they intermittently meet, developing an interest in one another. They eventually get together at a chaotic restaurant, along with several other quirky characters.

Those enrolled in Summer Film School should arrive at 6 p.m. for a lecture. The screening begins at 7 p.m. and a discussion will follow.

Sponsored by the Meg and John P. Brogan Endowment for Classic Cinema.
