L’ATALANTE

France | 1934 | Jean Vigo

L’ATALANTE film still

Voted one of the 10 best films of all time in the 1962 and 1992 Sight & Sound “greatest films” polls, this lyrical, funny, rhapsodic French classic by the great Jean Vigo is a romantic masterpiece about a river barge captain who takes a wife. The bride comes to live with him on the boat he shares with a salty, eccentric old mate (an indelible Michel Simon), but it’s not smooth sailing for the young marrieds. This was the final film by the anarchistic Vigo (Zero for Conduct), who died at age 29. Subtitles. DCP. 89 min.

General admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D.holders, and those age 25 & under $8.

Face masks, though always recommended, must be worn by filmgoers only when the CDC’s community risk level for Covid in Cuyahoga County is HIGH. Visit cia.edu/covid for the current community risk level and see the “Face Coverings” section for our detailed mask requirements.

As a reminder, filmgoers can park for free in Lot 73 and in the Institute's annex lot, and should enter CIA via nearby Entrance C. Click here for a map.
