Film: Mr Hulot’s Holiday (1953)
  • Jill Craigie Cinema, Plymouth University

Save event

Monsieur Hulot, Jacques Tati’s endearing clown, takes a holiday at a seaside resort, where his presence provokes one catastrophe after another. Tati’s masterpiece of gentle slapstick is a series of effortlessly well-choreographed sight gags involving dogs, boats and firecrackers. It was the first entry in the Hulot series and the film that launched its maker to international stardom.

Introduced by Michael Punt, Professor of Art and Technology at Plymouth University and founding convenor of Transtechnology Research.

'Revolutionary Inventions' season at Peninsula Arts

Recognising that the revolutionary theme not only speaks to political change we asked our programmers and academic colleagues to think about revolution in terms of inventions – those life changing, ingenious and innovative inventions that alter the course of history forever. Of course technological inventions do not happen in isolation they are often linked to social and cultural shifts with one usually preceding the other. Our programme attempts to look at these cultural and technological connections.

It is also important to remember that inventions are just that – invented – they are constructs of human interactions and relations, borne out of questioning, observation, study and sometimes argument.
