The second Hulot movie and Tati’s first color film, Mon Oncle is a supremely amusing satire of mechanized living and consumer society that earned an Academy Award. 1958, France, 35mm, English language version, 116 minutes.

From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has letterpress survived in a digital age? Worlds of each character emerge as unusual narratives—joyful, mournful, reflective, and visionary—are punctuated with on-screen visual poetry,…
