Love Battles: The Films of Jacques Doillon

Doc Films at the University of Chicago presents a two-month tribute to Jacques Doillon, one of the most creative members of the generation of French filmmakers that emerged in the aftermath of the New Wave.

It's the first Chicago retrospective of his work since 1987. Jacques Doillon has made over 35 features since the early 70s, which received steady acclaim from French critics but has been perennially overlooked in the United States. More info and the program at

From Jan 5 - March 9, 2015  at Doc Films, 1212 East 59th Street, Chicago.
