Every Man for Himself: The Films of Maurice Pialat
NEW YORK  •  Walter Reade Theater  •  Ongoing
This two-part Maurice Pialat retrospective showcases ten features, a TV mini-series, and several shorts. Many of these works will be screened in new prints made specifically for the series by Gaumont.

Born in rural Cunlhat, Auvergne, in 1925, Pialat came to cinema professionally relatively late in life. By the early 1960s he was making short documentaries for French television; in 1968, at the age of 43, he completed his first feature, Naked Childhood. Although always supported by at least one section of French critics, production was never easy; five of Pialat’s ten completed features were forced to stop production at some point while their finances were reorganized. He only tasted real commercial success twice, with We Will Not Grow Old Together in 1972 and with To Our Loves (À Nos Amours) ten years later.
