Numéro zéro

Synopsis

The first feature film by the legendary filmmaker Jean Eustache, shot in 1971. A documentary portrait of the filmmaker’s grandmother Odette Robert, who talks directly to camera for two unedited hours about her memories of village life. She gives a passionate account of her lurid past – the wars she survived, the babies she lost, and the husband accused of pedophilia. Eustache considered the film a jumping-off point for his later work. But while a truncated version of the film was exhibited on French TV in the 70s, the longer original version was not screened publicly until 2003, nearly twenty years after Eustache’s death. This ultra-rare Stateside screening is not to be missed!
