I’m trying to learn for my Film class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
Watch: The 400 Blows (Truffaut,1959, France)
Read: Richard Brody. Truffaut’s Last Interview. The New Yorker. 29 July, 2010.
Read: François Truffaut. A Certain Tendency of the French Cinema. Cahiers du Cinéma. 1954.
Response (~600 words):
1. Apply concepts from the readings to the analysis of one scene from The 400 Blows examining its embodiment of the French New Wave as a story and through its material of film itself (Blocking, cinematography, editing, etc.).
