Join writer-director Joan Tewkesbury, editor-producer Paul Barnes and curator-scholar Mara Fortes as they take on the enigmatic Robert Bresson, one of the most rigorously disciplined filmmakers of all time, and a man who turned constraints (a fixed camera and lens, non-professional actors, no soundtracks) into deeply spiritual experiences with an insightful discussion on A Man Escaped.
This unforgettable film remains perhaps the most suspenseful jailbreak film of all time. Based on the account of an imprisoned French Resistance leader, this unbelievably taut and methodical marvel follows the fictional Fontaine’s single-minded pursuit of freedom, detailing the planning and execution of his escape with gripping precision. But Bresson’s film is not merely about process—it’s also a work of intense humanity. Joan, Paul and Mara will discuss the film’s history, cultural contexts, aesthetics and mechanics in ways that will teach us both about the intricacies of cinema and about the nature of life itself.
When you register for free, you will receive a streaming link of A Man Escaped to watch prior to the webinar panel discussion.
