Jean-Pierre Melville

Mon 04 Sep to Thu 28 Sep 

Dust off your fedora hats and trenchcoats for this season of films by one of France’s most iconic and influential directors - Jean-Pierre Melville. Born Jean-Pierre Grumbach in Paris in 1917, he adopted the nom de guerre “Melville” while working for the French Resistance in World War II - and kept it as his professional name when he returned from the war.

He would go on to be a huge influence on the French New Wave and an array of notable filmmakers since - including Martin Scorsese, Johnnie To, Michael Mann and Quentin Tarantino.

Amusez-vous!
